2017 Key Stage 1 and 2 Teacher Assessment and Test Results

Assessment in 2017

In 2016 the government introduced new national curriculum tests (commonly called SATs) to reflect the revised national curriculum launched in 2014. Test results are no longer reported as levels. Scaled scores are used instead to help calculate the new progress measures for schools.

 

What has changed?

The way the government measure primary school performance at the end of key stage 2 (KS2) has changed. Instead of measuring progress for individual pupils, the new measures look at progress at a school level. Progress measures provide parents with information to help them understand how their school is performing and to inform school choices. In order to calculate the school level progress measures, pupils’ results (at KS2) are compared to the achievements of other pupils across the country who had a similar starting point (prior attainment). Prior attainment is based on teacher assessment judgements at key stage 1 (KS1). Schools have progress measures published for 3 subjects: reading, writing and maths. There are 2 main advantages to the new progress measures:

· They are fairer to schools because we can compare pupils with similar starting points to each other

· They recognise the progress schools make with all their pupils, highlighting the best schools whose pupils go furthest, whatever their starting point.

 

Key Stage 1 - Teacher Assessment

In reading, writing and mathematics, teachers will assess children against three standards.

· Working towards the expected standard

· Working at the expected standard

· Working at greater depth within expected standard

 

For science children will be assessed against one standard – working at the expected standard.

 

Key Stage 2

In reading, writing and maths children are assessed against one standard – working at the expected standard.

In writing teacher assessment is used to judge pupil attainment.

The framework contains three standards:

· Working towards the expected standard

· Working at the expected standard

· Working at greater depth within the expected standard

What Progress Measures Mean

Most schools will have progress scores between -5 and +5. If a school has a progress score of 0 this means that on average their pupils achieved similar results at the end of KS2 ( end of Year 6) to pupils in other schools with similar results at the end of KS1 ( end of Year 2).

 

If a school has a positive progress score it means that on average their pupils made more progress than pupils in other schools with similar results at the end of KS1. For example: a score of +3 in reading would mean that on average pupils at the school got 3 scaled score points more in the KS2 English reading test, compared to other pupils nationally with similar results at the end of KS1.

 

A negative score doesn’t mean a school has failed or pupils have made no progress. It just means that on average their pupils have made less progress than pupils in other schools with similar results at the end of KS1. For example, a score of -4 in maths would mean that on average pupils at the school got 4 scaled points fewer in the KS2 maths test, compared to other pupils nationally with similar results at the end of KS1.
