Collecting KS2 data on Teacher Assessment

Having had over 100 schools respond to my plea to share data from KS1 Scaled Score tests, the next big issue on the horizon is the submission of Teacher Assessment data at the end of June.

In the hope of providing some sort of indication of a wider picture, I am now asking schools with Year 6 cohorts to share their data for Teacher Assessment this year, as well as comparison data for 2015. As with all the previous data collections, it won’t be conclusive, or even slightly reliable… but it will be something other than the vacuum that currently exists.

So, if you have a Year 6 cohort, please do share your Teacher Assessment judgements via the survey below:

    Requested moderation on Friday, so will complete after that. Locally it’s looking like 65 – 70% ARE based on the interim assessment framework, rather than the NAHT reccommendation of an old 4b.

    I’m really keen to see how things are looking nationally. I have submitted my rather depressing-looking data but am expecting it not be too dissimilar to the majority…

    I have external moderation coming up, but am very worried as we’re being forced to report children as working towards who cannot string a sentence together, use full stops properly, have mixed up verb tenses, and are writing at year 3/4 level. I have no way of proving these children are at the level SLT says they are, as they arent, so don’t know what to do. Myself and the other year 6 teachers have expressed our concerns but are being told there is evidence. Well there is if you count 1 comma being used properly. Or a capital letter being used at the beginning of a sentence cancelling out the other 4 used randomly in the middle of the sentence.

      What a horrible, horrible situation to be in. My only advice would be to be carefully honest.

    Hi! I wondered if there will be an update to this post this week (I know everyone is crazy busy!) but I am driving myself insane trying to not be too depressed about our TA scores and am looking for some reassurance. Writing is looking like 56% at a push but have been told by Local Authority we shouldn’t be submitting less than 70% due to us being in special measures and what this can mean to us. We have been moderated and they moved a few down (I know I was being ambitious but being told you had to was impossible to ignore). All I want to find out is if people are being genuine and then results are low or being forced to put through numbers that won’t make any sense when the test results come back. Thanks in advance!

    All I have is the very brief outline of data shared here:
