The Department for Education has published the results of a study that compares the three reception baseline assessments used by schools this academic year. The study concludes that the 3 different assessments are not sufficiently comparable and therefore cannot be used as a starting point from which to measure pupils’ progress.

As a result, key stage 1 results will instead be used as the starting point from which to measure pupils’ progress to the end of key stage 2.
