The second section of the report, ‘Some of the questions I got wrong were on:’, relates to the easiest questions answered incorrectly.
The final two sections ‘Most pupils with similar skills are able to … and are likely to move on to:’, relate to your child’s overall performance in the assessment and provide an overview of the sort of skills that learners with a similar pattern of answers are able to achieve or are working towards.
The feedback is just one source of information on your child’s overall knowledge and understanding. Your child’s teacher will consider this feedback, alongside other information they have on your child’s skills in reading and numeracy work in the classroom, in order to plan their learning.
The school will also share progress reports, showing progress over time in the reading and numeracy personalised assessments. The progress chart shows all the online assessments your child has taken. Using the information from their assessments, the graph shows where your child is in comparison to all other
children in their year group across Wales. You will be able to see your child’s progress from one year to the next.
The progress report also includes your child’s age-standardised score from their most recent assessment. The score shows how your child has done compared with other children in Wales born in the same year and month. The score range is 70–130 and the average is 100.
Schools will decide when to share these reports with parents/carers. Please note that schools are able to provide progress reports for Numeracy (Procedural), but progress reports for Reading will not be available until late in the 2020/21 school year.
