RAISEonline Purpose A joint Department for Education (DfE) and Office of Standards in Education (Ofsted) web based school performance analysis tool. It is used to inform the school self evaluation process which underpins school inspection. First released with 2005 national pupil level data for assessments at Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4 (7, 11, 14 and 16 year olds). Now containing pupil data for more than 6 million pupils across more than 21,000 state schools. This represents 95% of all children in schools.
RAISEonline and the English education system (simplified) England has a National Curriculum with National Key Stage assessments at ages 7, 11, 14 and 16. Key Stage 1 ages 6 and 7 –At age 7 Key Stage 1 teacher assessments of attainment in reading, writing and mathematics take place. This data is loaded into RAISEonline Key Stage 2 ages 8, 9, 10 and 11 (end of primary) –At age 11 Key Stage 2 tests of attainment take place in English and mathematics. This data is loaded into RAISEonline Key Stage 3 ages 12, 13 and 14 –At age14 Key Stage 3 teacher assessments are made. Key Stage 4 ages 15 and 16 (end of secondary) –General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) Examinations and other equivalent qualifications take place. This data is loaded into RAISEonline
RAISEonline access RAISEonline is a secure password protected system. Ofsted ensure that users access to the system protects sensitive data. Only school users have access to pupil identities. Other users (including school inspectors) do not have access to pupil identities. Parents do not have access to RAISEonline. Parents and the wider public are provided with extensive school level accountability data through the School Performance Tables which are published annually by the Department for Education. www.education.gov.uk/performancetables/
Secure website with differentiated access for different users to protect pupil identities.
The “full report” is used by school inspectors to inform their understanding of the historic performance of the school across a wide range of pupil attainment and progress measures. The “full report” contains a limited subset of the interactive reports within the system. The choice of reports is decided by Ofsted.
This information is private to the school and can be added to by the school if they choose.
Test and teacher assessments are collected centrally and stored. The levels and marks of components of the tests are also included
Schools may choose to add the test item data themselves to enable a greater depth of self evaluation to take place.
Issues The RAISEonline system needs to respond to change –As education policy has changed so must RAISEonline. This has included changes to the Key Stage assessments and changes to national school performance indicators There is a constant requirement to be vigilant with data protection Balancing speed of data delivery in the system each year with robustness of analyses Data literacy –The levels of data literacy amongst all users is variable –Data literacy must not be assumed to be in place or straightforward to provide. How do you train more than 200,000 users of the system? –Investment in a range of training materials has been necessary Software ages quickly –The current design and functionality of RAISEonline is more than 5 years old and the current interface reflects this
