    Thanks

    The emaths ones stop at 2003 for KS2 and the naa ones are for this year.
     
  5. If I could be ***** it might be instructive to see how the grade boundaries have shifted over the years, but my gut feeling is that they have gradually dropped, a mark or two each year. Has anybody analysed them?

    I know that harder papers could equal lower boundaries, but I'll bet my odd socks (and I have a few choice ones) that the level 5 boundaries at KS3 are not as high as they were in, say, 2002.
     
  6. Scores to hit level 5 on each tier:

    Tier 2008 1998
    3-5 96 107
    4-6 54 63
    5-7 32 37
    6-8 33 39


    But they aren't dumbing down, are they?
     
  7. ****** - try again, Doc:

    Tier.....2008.....1998
    3-5.......96.......107
    4-6.......54.......63
    5-7.......32.......37
    6-8.......33.......39

    So, on the bottom two tiers, approxiamtely 1 mark per year. On the top two, approximately 0.5 marks per year.

    So, why do NCT Papes keep getting harder? Accident or design?
