From Katie Blainey, Publishing Director, RS Assessment from Hodder Education
The majority of studies of primary school trends use the National Test results which are limited to two discrete points (year 2 and 6), whereas PIRA and PUMA are used termly throughout Reception to Year 6, giving a unique viewpoint, plus the data is very up to date (running up to summer 2018).
We have been working with Timo Hannay, founder of SchoolDash, an expert in data analysis in education to analyse the aggregated data set. The insights and analysis from this data will allow us to tailor our resources and solutions to address the data-driven issues we are uncovering. We intend to build on this analysis to provide further insight for schools and educationalists to use to continue to improve the chances for all children in primary education.
