SATS Examination results 2018
The provisional results for Heron Park
Please see below the government guidelines:
‘Old’ national curriculum levels (e.g. Level 3, 4, 5) have now been abolished, as set out in government guidelines. From 2016, test scores will be reported as ‘scaled scores’. It is planned that 100 will always represent the ‘national standard’. Each pupil’s raw test score will therefore be converted into a score on the scale, either at, above or below 100.
A child who achieves the ‘national standard’ (a score of 100) will be judged to have demonstrated sufficient knowledge in the areas assessed by the tests. A child awarded a scaled score of 100 is judged to have met the ‘national standard’ in the area judged by the test.
A child awarded a scaled score of more than 100 is judged to have exceeded the national standard and demonstrated a higher than expected knowledge of the curriculum for their age.
A child awarded a scaled score of less than 100 is judged to have not yet met the national standard and performed below expectation for their age.
In addition, some schools will be required to take part in Science testing, consisting of three tests in Biology, Physics and Chemistry. Not all schools will take part in this sampling, which takes place on a later date.
All tests are externally marked. Writing will be ‘Teacher Assessed’ internally, as in recent years.
