KS2 2016 SATs Maths Gap Analysis Grid / Question Level Analysis (QLA)
GalvaniseEDU

KS2 2016 SATs Maths Gap Analysis Grid / Question Level Analysis (QLA)

(2)
These are excel spreadsheets Gap Analysis documents for the May 2016 Year Six SATs Papers for Mathematics (Arithmetic, Reasoning 1 & 2).The sheet totals up the scores automatically and each child’s final score changes colour to reflect their ability. If their total score for a subject goes green, it means they would have passed the 2016 SATs with that score. If it goes Orange, it means they are within touching distance. If it goes Green with a yellow font, it means that child would have achieved a ‘More Able’ score for that tested subject. I have also included a digital document, linking to a freely available copy of each test, mark scheme and instructions. Additionally, I have included the conversion tables from RAW Score to Scaled Score. All a teacher has to do is enter their children’s names and enter the 0’s, 1’s, 2’s or 3’s for each question, which also change colour too for a visual reference. I recommend that a teacher should enter ‘N’ if a child did not attempt that question. This gives an idea of who is not even attempting certain questions, not just whether they got the question wrong. The sheets are set up for 30 pupils but more can be added/deleted and instructions are on the first page/sheet. Some cells are locked/protected in this document but the parts that you need to insert yourself are editable. This is so that the formulas/algorithms do not break and render the spreadsheet’s functionalities as broken. If you wish to have a complete set of gap grids for the 2016 SATs, they are available as one package in my shop at a bundled, cheaper price. I take requests for Gap Analysis Grids. Please leave feedback if you like this resource as I am planning to produce more for each SATs paper going forward, as well as CGP Practice Papers. Please remember to rate this resource as I made this to save teachers time. Thank-you.
