In July this year, RAISEonline published the following developments, which we have summarised below:
Year 2 phonics screening check
A report that analyses the results of those pupils re-taking the phonics screening check in year 2 alongside those that are taking the test for the first time in year 2.
Changes to Key Stage 2 reports
- Reading and writing results are to be reported separately in the attainment and progress tables in RAISE. There will no longer be a calculated overall English level.
- Grammar, punctuation and spelling test attainment will be analysed separately for attainment only.
- New reporting will be provided across the combination of mathematics test, reading test and writing teacher assessments at levels 3, 4, 5 and 6 (remembering the new floor target is 60% in L4+ reading, writing and maths combined).
- “Good” L4+ (L4b in maths and reading tests and L4 in writing assessments) percentage to be reported.
A review of the RAISEonline summary report and interactive charts
The summary report will be significantly reduced in size by removing a number of the charts and tables.
Changes to the calculation Key Stage 4 English and mathematics with equivalences
From 2013 RAISEonline will display English and mathematics data based only on those qualifications which meet the criteria for English baccalaureate and basics measures, not equivalents.
Closing the Gap report
The KS2 and KS4 Narrowing the Gap reports will be updated and renamed Closing the Gap (CtG) reports. The free school meals (FSM) only option will no longer be reported on. A new table for average point scores (APS) will be added and significance testing will no longer be displayed.
The KS4 report will no longer display ‘with equivalent English and mathematics’, this will be replaced with English baccalaureate, English and mathematics.
The KS2 report will include the results of the grammar, punctuation and spelling test.
Expected progress report for free-school-meals and children-looked-after group
A free-school-meals and children-looked-after (FSM/CLA) variant of the expected progress reports will be created for Key Stages 1 to 2 and Key Stages 2 to 4.
See our website for data reports available before RAISE is published and also others that will interpret the data on RAISEonline for your school.
