Hi all,
Just a quick message/request. Just wondering if anyone has any data (or a pointer to results) with regards the marks achieved for Paper 1 vs Paper 2 of the 2007 Year 9 4-6 paper.
We're using Paper 1 only as a quick assessment and wondered if it is sensible to double this score for a quick assessment??
I can't seem to track down my school's actual results for 2007 (or when it was used as a mock in 2008) to see if scores were discernibly higher on either paper.
(I only ask as my class did less well than I personally expected on paper 1, so am hoping that on average Paper 2 was more "accessible"!!!!!).
Any help would be great, if not I'll get them to do Paper 2 as well!!!!!

If you look down for levelling template that might help too.

I can send you the data if you want
Using Excel to draw a scatter graph it shows for x=paper 1 and y=paper 2
tier 6-8: y=0.704x+7.5 with a correlation of 0.68
tier 5-7: y=0.590x+13.4 with a correlation of 0.61
tier 4-6: y=0.670x+13.4 with a correlation of 0.64
each of these have population size of around 65
tier 3-5: y=0.738x+10.8 with a correlation of 0.75
but this was only on a population of 25
so if they only did paper 1 at 4-6, you would need to roughly take 2/3 of the value and then add 13 to get a estimate for paper 2.

Cheers anyway.

I love the mathematics in play here!!!!!!
Thanks for the info.
My kids scored between 19 to 29 on Paper 1 which using your analysis would suggest a higher score should be achieved for Paper 2. I'll go with that!!!!!!!
