Assessment Results - 2017

2016 KS2 SATs Results Explained

What is a ‘scaled score’?

Your child will have achieved a ‘raw’ score for maths, reading and GPS (Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling, sometimes called SPaG) based on the number of questions they correctly answered. This is then converted into a ‘scaled score’. A score of 100 is required to meet the expected standard.

 

What does that mean for my child’s score?

  • If your child has achieved a score of 100, he/she is working roughly at the expected national standard for a Year 6 pupil.

  • Using the scaled score, the lowest a child can score is 80, with the highest being 120.

  • If your child’s score is closer to 120 he/she is working beyond (or above) the expected national standard.

  • If your child’s score is closer to 80 he/she is working below the expected standard.

 

Are this year’s SATs results better than in previous years at my school?

We cannot compare this year’s tests to previous years due to huge changes in the National Curriculum since 2014. These are the first test results that really record success with the ‘new’ curriculum.

 

Nationally this year expectations have been raised for schools compared to previous SATs results years

 

What are the national trends?

For 2016 the average standard scaled score for each subject is as follows:

 

Standard Scores:

  • Reading: 103

  • Maths: 103

  • GPS: 104

 

How do schools calculate the ‘combined’ score?

The combined score is not an average of the scaled results. It is a percentage based on how many children have met the expected standards in all three subjects (i.e. reading, writing and maths).
