1 PLASC/NPD User Group Mick Quinlan Change, or the lack of it The Players: suppliers and users NC assessment process A wander through the book… an A-Z of the collection of NC assessment data

2 Forward Id like to change the current process but: –there are many players in the game each with existing systems and many dependencies –were not good at managing change!

3 Drivers for Change 1998 Service delivery failure of data collection exercise 1999 Rose report – Weighing the Baby 2004 Beasley report – service delivery failure of KS3 English test results 2005 Statistics Commission report #23 – measuring standards in English Primary schools 2005 Statistics Commission report #26 – school education statistics: user perspectives 2006 NAO 3 rd validation compendium report – quality of data systems underpinning PSA targets –Broadly appropriate but system needs strengthening

4 Metadata Statistics Commission #23, Feb 2005, §11 –We feel that public presentation of the KS scores in statistical releases should include a clear statement about the uses to which the data may be put, and the limitations of the data in respect of those uses Statistics Commission #26, June 2005, §D –Full and informative statistical commentary should be provided alongside the figures to guide users

5 Making Good Progress

6 Changes for 2006 KS2/3 Electronic collection of TA, including pupil-level non-core results for KS3, via S2S – rather than OMR forms –A decision has been taken by the Departments Head of Profession for Statistics not to provide this data until the quality and robustness can be assured (SFR ) KS3 English: Richard III in, Henry V out KS3 ICT onscreen test 2nd pilot (170,000 pupils)
