Converting KS2 scaled scores to fine point scores

Discussion in 'Assessment' started by acarter17, Jan 11, 2018.

    Is anyone aware of any tool or facility which converts the Key Stage 2 Reading/Maths/GPS scaled scores (i.e. from 80 to 120), to the KS2 Average Point (fine point) Score?

    If not, is there a certain methodology by which the fine point score could be derived from the scaled score as an approximation?

    Any assistance would be gratefully appreciated.

    Many thanks in anticipation.

    I had to jury rig a conversion table which I did using an old Ben Fuller spreadsheet and the 2017 Marks to standardised scores which I could then use for a lookup table. Not the best solution but may be of use to you so have attached in a zip containing pdf, xls and xls versions.

    Hope it helps.

    Hi S

    Thank you. I have used this to set targets for our students in year 7, 8 and 9.
    Much appreciated.

    This is a good resource, fortunately in a middle school as I am now I am not affected by KS4 like I used to be - it would have been useful then. My colleagues in the secondary sector will find this useful.
  7. whys the scaled maths score only go up to 112?

    Shaun, try the link from the cyberman post.

    It is because the old National Curriculum Levels for Maths KS2 only went up to Level 6 - any grade above the standardised score of 112 was considered to be a Level 6 and therefore no other equivalents were given.

    These resources have now been updated with extra notes in the presentation and a new spreadsheet model added that lets you look at the effect of changing the curriculum on attainment and progress measures.

    These have now been updated to correct an error in the 2015 SAT scores to fine level conversion.

    Thank you for this, really helpful. There is just one query - on the tables for converting scaled scores to APS the columns for each year group seem to have an error in that the 2016 KS2 cohort have 2020 as the year for KS4 results when in fact they will be 2021. Likewise for 2017 onwards... can you just confirm that 2016 should be 2021 etc? Thank you
