Key Stage 2 Results 2018
In 2016, new Key Stage 2 tests for Maths, Reading and Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling were administered, which assess children against a national standard. The tests administered during Summer 2018, were therefore the third set of tests that assessed the new primary curriculum, which was introduced in 2014.
When looking at results, there is a focus on both attainment and progress.
This refers to the standard that the children have reached, and for KS2 assessments, these results are reported as a scaled score. A scaled score of 100 represents the expected standard for each test. To reach the expected standard in each test subject, a pupil must achieve a scaled score of 100 or more. The threshold for the higher standard (working at Greater Depth) is a scaled score of 110. If a child achieves less than 100, this means that they may require more support to reach the expected standard.
The highest scaled score possible at KS2 is 120, and the lowest is 80. There is more information on scaled scores at: www.gov.uk/guidance/scaled-scores-at-key-stage-2.
Individual pupil progress scores are calculated in comparison to other pupils nationally. The average progress score will be zero. A school’s progress scores for Reading, Writing and Mathematics are calculated as its pupils’ average progress scores. This means that school level progress scores will be presented as positive and negative numbers either side of zero.
Progress scores for Reading, Writing and Maths will be centred around 0, with most schools within the range of -5 to +5.
* A score of 0 means pupils in this school on average do about as well at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
* A positive score means pupils in this school on average do better at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally and a negative score means pupils in this school on average do worse at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
