KS2 2022 SATs Maths Gap Analysis / Question Level Analysis (QLA)

(2)
These are excel spreadsheets Gap Analysis documents for the May 2022 Year Six SATs Papers for Maths (Arithmetic, Reasoning 1 and Reasoning 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 2022 SATs with that score. If it goes Purple with a white font, it means that child would have achieved a ‘More Able’ score for that tested subject.** I have also included an instructions and document page, linking to a freely available copy of each test, mark scheme and instructions. Additionally, I have included a link to 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 or 90 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. This password will not be given out, but I am more than happy to make adaptations or changes for you, provided you show proof of purchase. All of my contact details are in the resource. 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.

White Rose Maths End of Block Assessment Tracker Years 2-6

This resource contains an assessment tracker for Years 2-6. Teachers input the names of children in their class and then their result in the end of block assessments into the spreadsheet. The results in the spreadsheet will change colour to indicate, based on KS2 SATs threshold percentages, whether that child is working at Age Related Expectation or Greater Depth (approximately). The spreadsheet automatically calculates every child’s total score, their average score, and the average score for each block based on whole class data. This can be used to inform intervention groups, a teacher’s area for development or to help with data submission to SLT throughout the year. Keep in mind, this is NOT a question level analysis grid set for each block.

Compare diary entries (KS2)

Two diary entries based on the same event (visiting the new school wildlife/garden area) One is basically written with very little attempt at adding detail, high-level punctuation and complex sentences. The other is of end of KS2 Standard. I used this activity to get the children to realize that as teachers, we see pieces of text about the same event but the quality of the texts varies drastically. Which would they rather be writing? Which would I rather be reading? Why? Explain why one is better than the other. Files are uploaded as Publisher, PDF and Word.
