Scaled score conversion tables for key stage 2
The scaled score conversion tables for the 2017 key stage 2 national tests have been published by the DfE.
- In reading, children need a scaled score of 26 to reach the expected standard (5 more than 2016)
- In maths, children need a scaled score of 57 to reach the expected standard (3 less than 2016)
- In GPS, children need a scaled score of 36 to reach the expected standard (7 less than 2016)
National attainment figures (interim)
The interim 2017 key stage 2 national attainment figures have also been published. The results show that the percentage of children reaching the “expected standard” (a scaled score of 100 or more) has increased in every subject compared with 2016.
- 61% of children reached the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics in 2017 compared to 53% in 2016.
To reach the expected standard in all of reading, writing and mathematics, a child must achieve a scaled score of 100 or more in the reading and mathematics tests and a teacher assessment outcome of “reaching the expected standard” or “working at greater depth” in writing.
We will find out how many schools have fallen below the government’s floor standards when the final results are published in December 2017.
