What are people’s thoughts?
Everyone wants to know about progress measures, but we won’t have the national data until September. We can’t work it out in advance… but is it worth trying to estimate?
I collected data on Tuesday night about the SATs results, and my sample was within 1 percentage point of the final national figures, which wasn’t bad. However, this would be a much more significant project.
To get anything close to an estimate of national progress measures, we would need a substantial number of schools to share their school’s data at pupil level. It would mean schools sharing their KS1 and scaled score results for every pupil – anonymised of course, but detailed school data all the same.
My thinking at this stage is that I’d initially only share any findings with the schools that were able to contribute. It would be a small sample, but it might give us a very rough idea. Very rough.
Would it be useful… and do people think they would be able to contribute?
