The Standards and Testing Agency has published instructions for head teachers and local authorities for submitting key stage 2 teacher assessment data in 2017.
Teacher assessment, including P scale data, must be submitted for every pupil who is:
- registered to take a national curriculum test
- registered as working below the overall standard of the tests
Schools can submit data directly to STA using NCA tools. Alternatively, schools may submit data to the LA, if the LA has agreed to submit it on their behalf.
TA is the main focus for end of KS2 English writing assessment and reporting. Schools are also required to report TA for English reading, mathematics and science.
In 2017, KS2 TA judgements must be submitted using:
- interim TA frameworks
- interim pre-key stage standards
- P scales
Pupils must be assessed across the range of attainment for each subject. For example, a pupil may be assessed as 'working at the expected standard' in mathematics but 'working at growing development of the expected standard' in English writing, and 'has not met the expected standard' in science.
