Can I Import Key Stage 2 data/Scaled Scores?

Solution

It is possible to import Scaled Scores using the Key to Success import routine (Admin > Spreadsheet > Key to Success). for these pupils.

The only tool which currently supports Scaled Scores is the new Transition Matrices tool. There is a video tutorial at www.4matrix.com/videos which goes through this in some detail.

There is currently no official guidance for using Scaled Scores with Progress 8, and there are various other caveats to consider including the Attainment 8 estimates being calculated from the previous years Year 11, not knowing the subjects that the pupils will go on to take at GCSE, and subject-specific issues such as requiring separate language and literature grades.

We are aware that there will be a number of schools starting GCSE courses for Year 9 in September 2018 that will want to start investigating Progress 8 for this year group, and we will be looking into a couple of possible options to support this during the summer and into the new academic year.
