@TES_Rosaline, could you ask someone from TES News to explain why they are reporting as 'landmark' significant claims that have as yet not been published and therefore cannot be reviewed by its readers? Exclusive: Third of pupils in wrong maths set 'The latest findings, in an unpublished paper seen by Tes, come from an analysis of data from 9,301 Year 7 pupils at 46 secondary schools in England. The researchers compared which maths set the pupils should have been put in – based on their key stage 2 Sats maths scores – with the sets they were actually placed in. They found that 31.1 per cent of pupils were placed in sets that were either higher or lower than their end-of-primary results would have warranted.' TES.com, 6th September 2018. This cannot be reported as fact and TES should withdraw this story immediately until such time as the paper is published. If not then the question must be to why TES News & its reporters are preferentially promoting the work of UCL's Institute of Education. To trumpet this story as an 'exclusive' is pathetic when no doubt every other outlet to whom this paper was offered held fast to their journalistic standards. Is there an editor available who might be held to account for promoting potentially flawed claims to the teaching profession and to parents of Mathematics pupils who previously regarded TES as a trusted source of information?
