There’s been a lot of talk in the media about the results of the KS2 SATS, with only a reported 53% of pupils meeting the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Maths. But what do we learn if we look beyond this headline statistic? What did we really find out about the performance of 11-year-olds across the country? Are we any the wiser about scaled scores? And what more have we learnt about the Government’s plans for assessment reform?
What are the main results?
The main headline in relation to the KS2 SATs results has been that almost half of 11-year-olds failed to meet the new National Standard in the three R’s – just 53% made the grade in Reading, Writing (now teacher-assessed) and Arithmetic, compared to 80% last year.
If we look a little deeper, the individual results for each strand of the tests can tell us more:
- 66% of pupils met the standard in Reading
- 70% in Maths
- 72% in Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling
- 74% in the teacher-assessed Writing
