1 14-19 update1 Accountability (& study programmes) 3

2 14-16 Performance Measures update2

3 3 KS4 reforms – a reminder 5A*-C replaced by ‘Progress 8’ for floor standards Additional reporting of – ‘Attainment 8’ – Maths and English – EBacc Double weighting of maths and English in Progress 8 and Attainment 8 New approach applies to all for 2016 results (2014 cohort) Opt in opportunity for 2015 results Schools will get ‘shadow data’ for 2014 results

4 GROUP 3 ‘Open group’ Remaining Ebacc qualifications and other approved qualifications, including second English GCSE (GCSEs and other approved academic, arts or vocational qualifications) GROUP 2 EBacc qualifications (sciences, computer science, geography, history and languages) GROUP 1 English: Double weighted* Maths: Double weighted *Higher score of English Language or English Literature double weighted if a student has taken both qualifications Attainment 8 and Progress 8 requirements update

5 5 New points system Current points system seen to be complex and lack transparency New principles proposed: – The ratio between high and low grades should be large enough to encourage students to focus on high performance – The difference between grades should be closer to the difference between a fail and the lowest grade – Point scores for the most common qualifications should appear simple and logical

7 Conversion of the average point score per student to grades for reporting purposes update7

8 8 Attainment 8 and Progress 8 Not ‘best 8’ The 8 qualifications which meet the formula The difference between the actual grade and the ‘target’ grade DfE example: – A student has a target of 8 x B – Actual achievement 4 x B and 4 x C – 4 grades lower across the 8 – VA is -0.5 grade – Average of all learner VA scores for school score

13 13 Calculating Progress 8 examples are for illustration purposes only Example 1:  The student’s weighted total is 63 points  Divide this total by 10 to get the Attainment 8 score  63 ÷ 10 = 6.3  This student’s average attainment is a bit better than a grade B across 8 subjects  Assume the average KS4 attainment for students with a similar KS2 performance is 6.0 points  Progress 8 is the difference between the actual score and the expected score  Actual = 6.3, expected = 6.0.  Progress 8 = 6.3 – 6.0 = +0.3 Calculate mean average of all students’ VA scores to get overall school VA School VA below -0.5 may lead to intervention update

14 14 Calculating Progress 8 – fewer than 8 subjects ‘It can be of more benefit to less-able students to strive for good grades (and hence score more points) in fewer subjects, with the emphasis on doing well in English and mathematics, than to take more subjects but achieve lower grades overall.’ (DfE Factsheet: Progress 8 measure – February 2014) More time available per subject allows additional support in English Language, and mathematics More time available to offer larger programmes in subjects which will interest and motivate eg BTEC

15 15 Calculating Progress 8 – fewer than 8 subjects examples are for illustration purposes only Example 2: Candidate X is predicted 30 points (average E grade) based on KS2 performance Follows curriculum with just 6 subjects Actual attainment: GradePointsWeighted points English LanguageC510 MathematicsD48 Ebacc 10 Ebacc 20 Ebacc 30 BTEC Cert SportMerit66 BTEC Cert ICTPass55 BTEC Award SciencePass55 English LiteratureG10 Weighted attainment update

16 16 Calculating Progress 8 – fewer than 8 subjects examples are for illustration purposes only Example 2:  The student’s weighted total is 34 points  Divide this total by 10 to get the Attainment 8 score  34 ÷ 10 = 3.4  This student’s average attainment is halfway between a grade E and a grade D across 8 subjects  Assume the average KS4 attainment for students with a similar KS2 performance is 3.0 points  Progress 8 is the difference between the actual score and the expected score  Actual = 3.4, expected = 3.0.  Progress 8 = 3.4 – 3.0 = +0.4 Note that the English Literature grade does not contribute because there are three better grades eligible for the third group update

17 17 Calculating Progress 8: An alternative scenario examples are for illustration purposes only Example 3: Candidate Y is predicted 3 points (average E grade) based on KS2 performance Follows curriculum that conforms to full Progress 8 requirements Actual attainment: GradePointsWeighted points English LanguageE36 MathematicsE36 BTEC Award SportPass55 BTEC Award ICTPass55 GCSE ScienceE33 English LiteratureG11 HistoryE33 FrenchF22 Weighted attainment update

18 18 Calculating Progress 8 – fewer than 8 subjects examples are for illustration purposes only Example 3:  The student’s weighted total is 31 points  Divide this total by 10 to get the Attainment 8 score  31 ÷ 10 = 3.1  This student’s average attainment is a touch above an E grade across 8 subjects  Assume the average KS4 attainment for students with a similar KS2 performance is 3.0 points  Progress 8 is the difference between the actual score and the expected score  Actual = 3.1, expected = 3.0.  Progress 8 = 3.1 – 3.0 = +0.1  Candidate X may have the opportunity to progress to L3 study – perhaps choosing a BTEC National in Sport or IT. Will need to continue with maths, but not much ground to make up  Candidate Y can only progress to L2 study. Will need to continue with maths and English – with considerable ground to make up  Importance of passing mathematics and English first time for 2014 Y10 in particular update

19 19 Meeting the various English requirements Attainment 8 and Progress 8: o Either English Language or English Literature; no minimum grade o Points for better grade will be double weighted if both taken English (and maths) measure: o Either English Language or English Literature; minimum grade C o No requirement to have taken both subjects Ebacc: o English Language and English Literature must be taken o Grade C required in either ‘Good pass’ to meet study programme requirements: o Grade C in English Language required For all measures, GCSE in English will also count on its own – 2016 tables only

20 BTEC Firsts in Science The BTEC Firsts in Principles of Applied Science and Application of Science may be included in the 2016 Performance Tables in the ‘open group’ of Progress 8 and Attainment 8. From 2017 onwards, DfE is excluding from the list of qualifications included in key stage 4 performance tables, non-GCSE qualifications whose content is similar to those of English Baccalaureate (EBacc) subjects, namely maths, English, science (including computer science), geography, history and languages. This means that from 2017 the BTEC Firsts in Principles of Applied Science and Application of Science will no longer be included in Progress 8 or Attainment update20

21 14-19 update21 The first entry rule Concerns about o early entry o multiple entry o multiple results Covers all subjects and qualifications eligible for performance tables (Ebacc subjects only for 2014 results, all from 2015) Does not cover AS levels

22 14-19 update22 Defining ‘entry’ GCSE or L1/2 Certificate ‘entry’ is the date of the first paper taken Where there is not a fixed exam date (eg GCSE Drama, Art & Design) the date will be the final date of the assessment window BTEC ‘entry’ is the final date for claiming an award (which will lead to a guaranteed result in time for inclusion in performance tables)

23 14-19 update23 Exception discounting and other quirks Qualification ‘families’ English o English Language and English Literature o English Science o GCSE Core / Additional / Further Additional o Separate sciences o Certificate double awards o BTEC Principles of Applied Science Maths o GCSE Mathematics o Linked pair pilot o GCSE Statistics Private, transferred and very young candidates

25 14-19 update25 Post-16 accountability New approach applies to reporting of 2016 results Will cover L2 and below for the first time Builds on the division of qualifications into Academic, Applied General and Tech Level Separate reporting so that strengths and weaknesses can more easily be identified Emphasis on progress, as in KS4, but only for Academic and AG TL and L2 reporting on combined attainment and completion Reporting on maths and English achievement at L2, and achievement of maths at L3

26 14-19 update26 Headline measures Progress – Academic and Applied General only o Academic – ‘based on average attainment in GCSEs only o Applied General – ‘based on all quals achieved at KS4 Combined attainment / completion (Tech Level and Substantial level 2) Attainment English and maths GCSE (for students without at least a grade C GCSE at 16) Retention Destinations

34 GCSE English and maths Rules for those who have not achieved A*-C in GCSE English and/or maths by age 16 and will be commencing a post-16 programme in September 2015: Those with a grade D will only be funded if they are put on a GCSE course Those with lower than grade D will be funded to take a ‘stepping stone’ qualification first but the intention must be that they will be working towards retaking their GCSE update34
