Performance Indicators are available for all Optional Tests papers
SATs-style Optional Tests independent review

We have worked with Alpha Plus, a leading statistical consultancy, to provide performance indicator thresholds for all Optional Tests for Years 1 to 6. These will help teachers to identify whether children are:

  • working towards the expected standard
  • working at the expected standard
  • working at greater depth within the expected standard


Customers can download the Performance Indicators from their My Rising Stars acount. Simply login, click on the Optional Tests Set A, B or C icon on the dashboard, and then click on the relevant Teacher's Guide to find the indicator documents.

Using Optional Tests to work out what scaled score children may attain in their SATs

 

National Test Indicators for Optional Tests Set A Years 2 and 6

For Optional Tests Set A Years 2 and 6, we have also worked with AlphaPlus to provide National Tests Indicators. These help teachers find out what a child’s scaled score may be in their SATs, based on their Optional Tests results.
 
How were these developed?
 
We collected Optional Test scores for children in Years 2 and 6, and then compared these scores to the children’s actual national test results. We correlated the two sets of scores to provide tables which show what score a child may achieve in their SATs for each subject based on their Optional Tests score.
 
National Test Indicators provide a helpful gauge and are statistically valid – but are not a guarantee of performance. It’s impossible to predict exactly how a child will perform on any test.
