Performance Tables & Curriculum Changes 2016
Transcript of Performance Tables & Curriculum Changes 2016
It will measure the progress students make in their best eight subjects from KS2 to KS4
It will look at each student's results compared to how a student with the same KS2 results is estimated to perform
The estimates will be based on how students do nationally (using data from previous three years)
The score will be reported as a decimal, for example
+0.5 Half a grade above estimated expected progress
+1.25 A grade and a quarter above estimated expected progress
-0.75 Three quarters of a grade below estimated expected progress
By averaging all students progress 8 scores across a cohort, a whole school score is produced
English and Maths
The proportion of students achieving 'good' grades in English and Maths will still be a key measure of the school and of the students
Any student not getting a 'good' grade in English and/or Maths by the end of Y11, will have to continue to study it until they are 18
Grades A* - C are currently considered 'good', but this will change when the new 1-9 grades are introduced in 2017.
As of yet the Government haven't announced what number is the benchmark for a 'good' grade.
It is one of the only universal borderline 'cliff edge' measures left in the new performance tables (C/D students in the current system)
The 'cliff edge' impact of these is discussed later
The English Baccalaureate (EBacc)
What is the EBacc?
It is not a qualification in itself - it is a collection of core academic subjects, these are:
GCSE English Language or Literature
A Humanity GCSE (Currently History or Geography)
At least 2 Science GCSEs
A Language GCSE
How is the EBacc measured?
For the student to get the EBacc they must get a 'good' pass from each of the list above.
However, it appears that a school can fill its 3 EBacc slots for the purpose of the Progress 8 basket with any combo of Sci, Humanities and MFL.
However this combination won't count toward an EBacc headline figure.
Why these subjects?
These are subjects most likely to be required or preferred for entry to College/Sixth Form and ultimately University courses, they are also ones that will keep the most doors open for later career routes.
Schools will be measured on the number of students achieving the Ebacc
This measures a students raw results/grades across the same 8 subjects as Progress 8
This replaces 5+ GCSE's (or equivalent) at A* - C including English and Maths as the headline measure
This measure doesn't take into account starting points
It will show for example, what grades students get certain subjects in specific schools, and also the average for each subject.
This way you can compare subjects across different schools, towns/cities and counties
Subjects that make up the Progress / Attainment 8
Its really 10 slots!!
It still measures eight subjects but 2 are counted twice
The 8 subjects chosen are
not completely 'free'
they must instead fit into different categories
The next three slots are for your three Ebacc subjects.
The final two slots are for your options.
include other EBacc subjects
Or it could be the other Science
English is normally
First of all, everybody
to study English, Maths and two Sciences.
This is worth 5 of the 8 GCSE's and are called the Core Subjects
Then, if we want whats best for the students at Darton College then they should study either History or Geography and a Language.
This will take you up to 7 of your 8 GCSE's, these are the EBacc Subjects
You then have the choice of two options, these can be from any
of the subjects on offer at Darton College.
There are three pathways that are in operation
1 - Compulsory EBacc (students who are wanting to do A'levels or Lvl 3 BTEC's)
2 - Recommended EBacc (Students who really should be doing A'levels or Lvl 3 BTEC's)
3 - Optional EBacc (Students who may wish to go onto College and do A'level or Lvl 3 BTEC's)
Your child's pathway is determied by their end of Y9 attainment
This is where Eng Lit or Lang
to go, to be explained later
Ultimately its stops students and schools entering students into excessive qualifications to get the schools CVA/Progress 8 up.
Instead the emphasis is now focused on Progress in 8 key subjects, accounting for 10 grades.
2 x Maths (counts for double)
2 x English Lang or Lit (counts for double if 'passed' and other English is 'attempted')
3 x Ebacc Subjects
1 x Other English
2 x Optional Subjects
The need to take both English Language and Literature is 'optional' according to DFE guidance however this is clearly not the case.
If you don't take both, or if you do not 'pass' both, English then won't be double counted, and instead it will be an empty slot scoring the school 0.
This way schools not entering for both will lose a progress slot, thus having a huge impact on the overall progress measure.
Based on KS2 data* student A is expected to achieve grade 7's
If they make minimum expected progress in all 8 subjects then the raw score will be
10 x 7 = 70 then 70/10 = 7 average
If however we don't enter them into Eng Lit, and instead do an additional option, they still make minimum expected progress, then the raw score will be
9 x 7 = 63 then 63/10 = 6.3 average
The guidance is that any school more than -0.5 below the expected will require 'support'
* No information has been released yet re: KS2 data, but it has been reported 11/11/13 that the DFE and Ofqual are investigating the rigor of the assessment. Do not be surprised to see it all go to external assessment.
