KS1 Scaled Scores conversion tables released

As part of the Government’s reforms to primary assessment, scaled scores will now be used to report the outcomes of the end of key stage tests.

A pupil’s scaled score is based on their raw score, which teachers will know having marked the papers internally. To convert the raw scores to scaled scores, teachers should use the following conversion tables: KS1 2016 Conversion Tables

Pupil Asset users will be able to enter either the scaled scores or…wait for it…enter the test scores and the system will do the conversion automatically!

Full instructions can be found here.

Here is the full Government guidance on scaled scores.

Promotional material published for parents of children in Key Stage 1

In an attempt to help 'demystify' and explain the 2016 end of key stage assessments, the government has published an information booklet for parents.

Schools are free to give this out, but should be aware that it is freely available on the Gov.UK website and so parents may access it independently from here.

With that in mind, it’s worth a read!
