Has anyone been able to work out the sublevels from this year's KS2 Sats. I need to see who has made the "2" sub level progress and can't do it without figures to wotk from! Thanks

2. ### T34Established commenter

Just treat them all as "b"s.

Or, work out sub-levels from the marks and the grade boundaries.

3. ### trinity0097New commenter

Split each level into 3 equal bits to get a b or c, if they are unequal, the middle one should be the larger.

These are the boundaries I worked out:

Writing: 3c 12-16; 3b 17-20; 3a 21-24

4c 25-28; 4b 29-32; 4a 33-36

5c 37-41; 5b 42-46; 5a 47-50

Reading: 3c 11-12; 3b 13-15; 3a 16-17

4c 18-22; 4b 23-27; 4a 28-31

5c 32-37; 5b 38-44; 5a 45-50

Maths: 3c 18-26; 3b 27-35; 3a 36-44

4c 45-55; 4b 56-66; 4a 47-77

5c 78-85; 5b 86-93; 5a 94-100

Science: 3c 22-27; 3b 28-34; 3a 35-40

4c 41-48; 4b 49-56; 4a 57-63

5c 64-69; 5b 70-75; 5a 76-80

Hope this helps

Not a statician, but is this right?
If the test is meant to test level 3 to 5 and the bottom 11 marks are below level 3, shouldn't the top 11 marks be above level 5-assuming a bell curve.
Does anyone know??

6. ### normford16

No, I don't think that is correct. The questions are designed to test understanding of the NC attainment levels. You can't get 'higher than level 5' by simply getting lots of level 5 questions correct.
I'm not a statician either! so I might be wrong!!

8. ### flookbird

I think the sublevels above are from 2008 - this is an old thread from September which has been brought up.

9. ### kildonan

My apologies! I didn't look at the date of the thread.

RE: 2009 sub level thresholds - KS2 SATs
Hi there, bet there will be loads of people looking for the breakdowns now. These are the ones I've calculated - Hope this helps save some time for you all...
These sub levels are based on the 'Actual Thresholds' released by the NAA and I have adapted them using my own interpretation and previous experience. There are some judgements that could be questioned. Where this is the case, I have always made it more difficult to achieve a higher sub level.

WARNING - Science levels not correct - Sorry
Please ignore the science on the previous post... I forgot to update it before I posted it - been working for too long - lack of concentration... hope it as not caused any problems!
Here are the revised Science levels:

12. ### elaineamsmith

I have a writer with 35 levelled as L4 and one with 35 as L5?
Does this mean I'm not requesting a check on either?

13. ### elaineamsmith

I've also got a reader on 31 who has L5 - I'm thinking this is a 'kind' marker?

14. ### cornflakeEstablished commenter

If they scored 35, then it is a clerical error to give them a level 5 - and this may well be rectified when results are published online on Tuesday. We are being asked to treat all results as provisional til then (as ever!)

15. ### mdunwell

Has anyone done this for 2010 SATs yet?

16. ### nicoeste

Is 5c good for science in the middle of year 6? is 5c good for maths being only half way in year 6?

17. ### Devonsent

That depends on where they have entered the year and where they entered the Key Stage. 5c is bloody brilliant if they have made accelerated progress, 5c is poor if they are off track for their expected level of attainment.

18. ### nicoeste

Is 5C good for science in year 6? ANSWER ME PLEASE !!!!!!!!!

19. ### Devonsent

Alright alright, blimey.
Level 4 is national average.
