KS4 Performance Measures in Connect – An Invitation to Test
As a Connect user, you may know by now that we have been working to include performance measures to our analysis at KS4.
Specifically, this will take the form of an overview page with key accountability measures such as AT8 and APS scores.
Though it is planned, we have not included Progress 8 in the platform at this stage as we would like to wait until we have more clarity on how scaled scores will be baselined going forward. We anticipate this being built into the product swiftly once the DfE publishes guidance, likely after the 2022 results.
The exciting part? We are now at a stage where we have completed this development work and are undertaking rigorous internal testing of the calculations.
This November, we would love for volunteers to be involved in testing this new section. We will give guidance on what we would like you to test so that it doesn’t take significant amounts of your time and we welcome volunteers who do and do not (yet) use Alps at KS4.
Our goal is to iron out any potential snags and have the final product ready to release to all current KS4 users for early in 2022. Any upgrade to include KS4 in your subscription will also ensure you have this functionality included on launch in early 2022.
