:: Key Stage 4 assessment analysis in SIMS ::
Within SIMS, there is a suite of resources for detailed analysis of KS4 assessment data, including Assessment Manager templates, Discover graphs and SIMS.net reports that will output to Microsoft Excel. These resources are designed to help support schools with the transition from A* to G grades to 9 to 1 grades and the phased introduction of the new GCSE curriculum over the next few years. The SIMS.net reports include analysis of key performance indicators as defined by the DfE and for specific student groups as seen in the Analyse School Performance tool (the replacement to RAISEonline). In order for schools to use these resources, existing school data will need to be ‘mapped’ to a series of aspects and result sets in Assessment Manager, using the SIMS Assessment Mapping tool. In this course will look at using the mapping tool to convert data and consider the resulting data analysis available in the various resources provided.
