How to manage end of KS1 and KS2 data (2017/2018)

Pupil Asset always aims to stay up to date with national assessment requirements and so in order to support schools with recording their end of Key Stage assessments, we have the following features:

- Teachers from Years 2 and 6 can input their  Teacher Assessment Judgements alongside their internal tracking results. 

- Teachers from Year 2 can also import/input their pupils' scaled scores (conversion charts available Friday 1st June 2018 ) which will support their Teacher Assessment Judgements OR - if they prefer, they can enter their test results and scaled scores so there is a record of both. 

- Teachers from Year 6 will be able to import their scaled scores  as well as the component raw test scores, once they have been published on NCA tools on  Tuesday 10th July 2018.   

Entering Key Stage 1 Test and Scaled Scores

A scaled score can easily be entered via Results > Results,  simply Edit Results  as usual and then type in the appropriate scaled score.

Alternatively, the raw test scores can be entered which will enable both these and   the scaled scores to be kept for future reference. This can also be done via Results > Results  by amending the display options :

By turning Components on in the Display Options , teachers will be presented with additional spaces (components) to record pupils' individual test scores. Pupil Asset will then use the DfE's 2018 KS1 Conversion Chart  to automatically calculate the scaled score for you! 

Year 6 SATs test results and scaled scores

On  Tuesday 10th July,  schools will be able to download a CTF (Common Transfer File) containing Year 6 test results and Scaled Scores from  NCA Tools .The link to NCA Tools is  here . Once the CTF has been downloaded and saved to your files on your computer, it can then be imported into Pupil Asset.

Navigate to  Admin > Import  and select  Choose file . Select the appropriate file and press  Upload .

Pupil Asset will match results to learners by their UPNs. Press  Next  at the bottom of this page and all results will be imported into the correct columns on the Year 6 Results > Results pages.

Q: Why are the optional SPaG tests results linked to NC Writing-Composition and not NC Writing-VPGS?

A. NC Writing-VPGS was set up after some schools wished to be able to assess their vocabulary, punctuation, grammar and spelling separately to the rest of the writing curriculum. However, the vast majority of schools  do not  use this 'subject' and assess against NC Writing-Composition alone (which incorporates all the relevant writing elements). This means that (amongst other issues that we won't bore you with!) unless in use, the VPGS column does not show up for all schools. Therefore, to ensure that  all  schools can enter the results without having to change their settings, the SPaG results are linked to NC Writing-Composition. Schools that wish to continue to track via VPGS can do so by simply copying the results from one column to another via  Admin > Advanced > Results > Result Shifter. 

Entering Teacher Assessment judgements for Years 2 and 6

These results can be entered via  Results > Results.  Results can be entered for Pupil Asset subjects NC Maths, NC Reading, NC Writing Composition and NC Science.  Alternatively, input the end of year judgements via the DNA ticks page - don't forget to Save Results .  

NB: If you can't see the relevant columns, use the Display Options to select a fixed range and choose Teacher Assessment instead of latest results.

Please note:

  • The Assessment and Reporting Arrangements 2018 have rules as to which grades can be used for which subjects - we've made life easy for you by only providing the grades you can use for each subject!
  • The Pre-key stage standards are to be used by teachers to report a statutory assessment outcome for pupils working below the standard of the tests, but above the P Scales.  

Pupils working at P Levels

We have created two new subjects for recording the P scale results KS1 Teacher Assessments P Scales  and KS2 Teacher Assessment P Scales . Use the Subject Filter in ( Year 2 or  Year 6 ) to find them:

Fill in the columns according to the table below:

These results will need to be sent to the DfE either via the Local Authority or via NCA tools by Thursday  June 28th 2018.
