Year 6 Sample Test data – another update

As people continue to share their data via the spreadsheets, I thought it was about time to do one final update of summarised data based on the most recent shared results.

As we’re so close to the tests now, I have looked only at the data collected from tests taken since February half-term. That keeps it as a good sample size of 3500-4000 pupils in each case, while discounting the much older results. I don’t have enough data yet from Summer 1 alone to make much of it.

Key Stage 2 DfE Sample tests

Subject Mean Average Score Median Score Interquartile range
Reading 30 marks 31 marks 24 – 37 marks
Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling 36 marks 37 marks 28 – 46 marks
Mathematics 64 marks 65 marks 46 – 85 marks

The shifts are not that significant in reading and GPS (up by a mark each for the averages), but the maths average seems to have risen quite a bit (it was 59 marks just a month ago)

If you’ve recently used the tests in your school, please do add your data to the collection by entering into the spreadsheet here: Year 6 Sample Test data collection

You can access a spreadsheet to present your own school’s results in a comparison table and graphs alongside all of the national data collected so far (since January). Access the comparison spreadsheet here: Key Stage 2 Comparisons

    With the average grammar score, is that the average of both papers, spelling and grammar papers or just the average of the grammar paper?

      That’s the score of the combined tests. Or at least, that’s the theory.
      Of course, others may have misunderstood which will affect the accuracy of those predictions.
