National Curriculum Tests for Year 6 from 2016 onwards

 

A new National Curriculum was introduced in 2014. As a result, the Standards and testing Agency (STA) is changing the tests so that they assess the new curriculum. Pupils will take the new tests for the first time in May 2016.

 

As part of the national curriculum review, levels have been abolished. This is in part in response to government concerns about the validity and reliability of levels and sub-levels. Levels have also been recognised as the driver of undue pace through the curriculum, which has led to gaps in pupils’ knowledge.

The government is changing the way the tests are reported. From 2016 scaled scores will be used to report national curriculum test outcomes.

 

Scaled scores are used all over the world. They help test results to be reported consistently from one year to the next. The national curriculum tests will be designed to be as similar as possible year on year, but slight differences in difficulty will occur between years. Scaled scores maintain their meaning over time so that two pupils achieving the same scaled score on two different tests will have demonstrated the same attainment. For example, on the STA scale 100 will always represent the ‘national standard’. However, due to small differences in difficulty between tests, the ‘raw score’ (i.e. the total number of correct responses) that equates to 100 might be different (though similar) each year.

 

 

Results from National Curriculum tests will be included in the annual report to parents in July. It will report the child’s scaled score and whether they have met the national standard.
