*Progress 8 aims to measure a student’s academic progress from Key Stage 2 (end of primary school) to Key Stage 4 (end of Year 11). It is a type of value added measure, which means that students’ exam results are compared to the actual achievements of other students with the same prior attainment. Every increase in every grade a student achieves will equal additional points. National data is used to compare individual students performance with other students across the country who also had the same starting point. Each school/academy will get an overall score – getting an overall Progress 8 score of zero (0) means the students got the grades they should have – par performance. A score of more than zero (e.g. +0.25) means the students have made more than expected progress. A minus score (e.g. -0.2) means that students have made less progress than they should have. An Ofsted could be triggered if a school gets less than -0.5 (minus 0.5).
Attainment 8 aims to measure the achievement of students across their highest 8 grades. The grades are then added together to come up with a point score. Each grade is worth so many points i.e. grade 7 is equivalent to an A grade and grade 4 is equivalent to C grade. The 8 grades counted must include English and Maths (which count double) plus three GCSEs from the following academic subjects – Science, Modern Foreign Language, Geography or History, plus 3 other GCSEs or equivalent vocational qualifications (BTEC’s), that are on an approved government list of qualifications. A student will now leave secondary school with their GCSE qualifications and an Attainment 8 (or average) GCSE score.
