Collect Key Stage 1 data

By popular request, I am collecting data about both test scores and teacher assessment judgements for Key Stage 1. The intention is to provide colleagues with some very approximate indicative information about the spread of results in other schools.

As with previous exercises like this, it is important to warn that there is no real validity to this data. It isn’t a random sample of schools, it won’t be representative, it is easily corrupted, mistakes will often slip through… etc., etc.
But in the absence of anything else, please do share your data.

scoresI am collecting data in two forms. Firstly, test score data using scaled scores. These can be entered into the spreadsheet as with previous sample test score data. Please enter only scaled scores for your children. The spreadsheet can be accessed (without a password, etc.) at this link:

Share Key Stage 1 Test Scaled Score Data

tadataI am also collecting schools’ data on Teacher Assessment Judgements. To simplify this, I am collecting only percentages of children working at each of the three main bands in Key Stage 1. I am not collecting P-scales, pre-Key Stage or other data. For this, I have put together a Google Form which can be completed here:

Share Key Stage 1 Teacher Assessment Data

Please do read the instructions carefully on each form (you’d be amazed at how many foolish errors have been submitted previously through not doing so!)

    Thanks Michael findings will be of interest. Can’t wait to see your analysis that informs the dfe which position in the year group register you should be to be most likely to get a higher scaled score. Perhaps they will start comparing us on surnames in addition to your idea of house number probabilities and predictions (I think it was you who refereed to this previously).

    Why is it that we can redraft writing but not a maths test? Why not allow the children to redo the test once marked to see if they can gain extra marks. Surely this equates to feeding back to children about their writing after which point they can produced an improved version?

    All that valuable time wasted collecting data which frankly isn’t needed or wanted. All that time wasted which could have gone into improving the chances of children (even if it’s just an hour spent with one child helping them to read). If any of this hits secondary level, then I’m leaving teaching (and I’m a HoD in the highest shortage subject in the country!). No wonder 50%+ of teachers are thinking of leaving the profession in the next 3 years!
