How the tests will be scored
On publication of the test results in July 2016:
•A child awarded a scaled score of 100 is judged to have met the ‘national standard’ in the area judged by the test.
•A child awarded a scaled score of more than 100 is judged to have exceeded the national standardand demonstrated a higher than expected knowledge of the curriculum for their age.
•A child awarded a scaled score of less than 100 is judged to have not yet met the national standardand performed below expectation for their age.
•Marking guidance for KS1 tests will include conversion tables. Teachers will use these to translate pupil’s raw scores into scaled scores to see whether each pupil has met the national standard. Teachers will use the scaled scores to inform their teacher assessment judgements.
