KS2 Thresholds

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Fred Flintstone, Jul 3, 2011.

  1. Dearest DFEE, EdExcel, AQA, Mr Gove or anyone in charge of thresholds for KS2 SATS,

    Please can you keep the thresholds exactly the same as last year with the exception of level 5 Maths.
    If you could make this 77 (or better still, 76!), I would be eternally grateful.

    Yours Fred Flintstone
    (hoping for an early Christmas present!)

    Please do ignore Fred Flintstone, he is of the stone age.

    This year's thresholds actually need to be lowered by about 3-4 points for level 4 and 2 points for level 5.

    Thank you so much,


  3. Nah it's not going to happen is it?
    They need to make a point!
    Need to push through their policies and maybe even show that teachers are not doing their job probably, to show that Teacher pensions are not deserved!
  4. Blimey regencyrob, lighten up! It's a sunny July evening and there are only three weeks to go until 6 weeks of freedom!
    (P.S. I'd like all of the thresholds to be dropped by 4-5 marks- well...if we're asking for the impossible...)[​IMG]
  5. How will they decide the thresholds?
    Is this the first year where the government have all scores before deciding the thresholds?
    If so, will they say top 30% Level 5s, next 40% Level 4s, bottom 30% level 3s and below?
    Surely the government can fix it to whatever political agenda they say fit?
    Hhmmm....I can see a very dramatic change to the thresholds if this is the case.
  6. we havent had our papers back yet for english. Is it normal to not have them and results due out tues?
