  • Children are now described as working towards, working at and working at greater depth according to the Year 6 expectations of the new curriculum.
  • Test scores are now reported as 'scaled scores'.
  • It is planned that 100 will always represent the 'national standard'.
  • Each pupil's raw test score will therefore be converted into a score on the scale, either at, above or below 100.
  • A child who achieves the 'national standard' (a score of 100) will be judged to have demonstrated sufficient knowledge in the area assessed by the tests.
