A niggly question, if people in the know don't mind answering! As a school we are just getting our head around average points scores, and calculations of progress in terms of average points scores. I know that one sub level progress is 2 APS progress, as each sublevel is worth 2 more points than the previous sub level. However, a working towards (3) is worth 4 points less than a 1C (7). Does this mean if a child moves from P8 to 1C they have already made 4 APS progress? If so, does this not make Year 1 data on the whole look really good in terms of progress as many children are baselined as P7/P8 and move to 1C or above during the year? It seems a bit odd to me.
