• Individual Pupil Records (IPRs)
• Predictions (GCSE)

are inconsistent
General IPR Patterns
•
•
•
Pupils with high scores across all components
Pupils with low scores across all components
Pupils with significant differences between one or two components
•
Vocab lower than others
•

•
Score > 130 – top 2.5%

Challenging Work ?
Are they being Stretched ?
Pupils with low scores across all components
•
•
•
Score =70 – bottom 2.5%
Special Educational Needs ?
Specialist testing required ?
Vocab significantly lower than other sections
•
•
•
English Second Language ?
Understanding language used in learning and assessment ?
Language enrichment ?
Vocab significantly higher than other sections
•
•
•
Good Communicator ?
Work in class may not be to this standard
→ Weak Non-verbal
→ Weak Maths
→ Weak Skills (speed of working ?)
Many benefit from verbal descriptors ?
Maths significantly higher than other sections
•
•
•
•
Strong Maths ability
Not 100% curriculum free
May depend on prior teaching effectiveness
Far East influence ?
Maths significantly lower than other sections
•
•
•
Implications not just for maths but other numerate or data based
subjects
General poor numeracy ?
Remedial Maths ?
Non-Verbal Significantly Higher than other sections
•
•
•
•
Good spatial and non-verbal ability
May have high specific skills
Low Vocab, Maths & Skills may indicate has difficulty
communicating
Frustration ?
Non-Verbal Significantly Lower than other sections
•
•
•
•
Difficulty understanding diagrams or graphical instructions ?
Verbal explanation ?
Physical demonstration ?
Physical Models ?
Low Skills Scores
•
•
•
•
•
Skills = Proof Reading and Perceptual Speed & Accuracy
Speed of Working
Work well in class / homework but underachieve in exams ?
Problems checking work or decoding questions ?
Low Skills + Low Vocab
→ Poor written work in class (unable to work quickly)
→ Dyslexia ? Further specialist assessment required
High Skills Scores
•
•
•
•
•
Skills = Proof Reading and Perceptual Speed & Accuracy
Can work quickly & accurately
Difficulty communicating and expressing ideas ?
May perform poorly in areas using numeracy skills and subjects
needing 3D visualisation and spatial concepts ?
May struggle in most areas of curriculum.
Predictions
 NOT a forecast of the grade the student will get
 An indication of the grade (points score) achieved on average by students of

similar ability in the previous year
NOT a Target
Targets ?
• Minimum Targets – Round CEM prediction down ?
• Realistic Targets – Use nearest CEM grade ?
• Challenging Targets
→ 75th percentile ?
→ Prior Value Added ?
→ Arbitrary grade fraction ?
