Demystify 2016 KS2 results

  • 05.07.2016
  • by Stephen Turp, FFT
Children sitting key stage 2 tests this year were the first to be taught and assessed under the new national curriculum. The expected standard has been raised and the accountability framework for schools has also changed. 
    
The expected standard in the tests is a scaled score of 100 or above, with the range of scores running from 80 to 120.
      
Attainment in the tests is highest in grammar, punctuation and spelling and lowest in reading. Attainment in the writing teacher assessment is higher than in any of the test subjects. This is different from the pattern seen in previous years where attainment at level 4b or above was highest in reading and lowest in grammar, punctuation and spelling.
