NaCCA Introduces a QR Code Scanner for Instructional Materials Verification


The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) wishes to inform the general public about the
introduction of a uniquely designed QR Code Scanner to verify instructional materials (i.e. textbooks, teacher
guides, etc.) on the market.

The QR Code Scanner aligns with NaCCA’s commitments to promoting quality and effective education
