Assessment Information

End of key stage assessments 2017-18

The government have made many changes to assessment in the last couple of years  and children are no longer awarded levels such as 2b or 4b. Children are now measured against interim statements (please see links below to relevant documents). This means that your child will be measured against ‘expected’ standards and will be awarded a judgement such as:

  • working towards expected
  • working at expected standard
  • working at greater depth within the expected standard

 Progress scores explained (this has been taken from the document, ‘Primary School accountability’: Download

Pupil scores are calculated separately for English reading, English writing and mathematics. The first step is to assign pupils into groups with other pupils nationally, who had similar starting points.

For example: James has an average key stage 1 score of 17.0, his result in the key stage 2 mathematics test is a scaled score of 108. The national average scaled score in mathematics for pupils with an average key stage 1 score of 17 is 105. James, therefore, has a mathematics progress score of +3.0. In this example, James has met the ‘expected standard’ (a scaled score of 100 or more). He has done better than other pupils with the same key stage 1 attainment and, therefore, has a positive progress score.

A school’s progress score, for a subject, is the average of its pupils’ progress scores in that subject. For example, James is one of 60 pupils in his school’s key stage 2 cohort. These pupils have mathematics progress scores as follows:
