Investigating the predictive validity of the 2015 NFER Reception Baseline Assessment baseline.

Investigating the predictive validity of the 2015 NFER Reception Baseline Assessment baseline.                                                                                                     

 What is the aim of the project?

This project will help to provide greater evidence for the benefits of the 2015 NFER Reception Baseline as a measure and how this adds value to understanding pupil progress.  We will be analysing the association between pupil characteristics and performance at Key Stage 1 to build our report.

 Who is sponsoring NFER to carry out this work?

The National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) is self-funding this project. This project builds upon work undertaken by the Fisher Family Trust (FFT) who have looked at the correlation between EYFSP scores and KS1 outcomes using Teacher Assessment and scaled scores in English and Maths.

 How have schools been selected to take part?

All schools that participated in the NFER Reception Baseline Assessment in 2015 have been invited to take part.

 What does taking part involve?

We would like the sampled schools’ help with the provision of the KS1 Reading SATS and Maths SATs raw or scaled scores and Teacher Assessment for pupils who undertook the Reception Baseline within their schools.

 How will NFER use and protect the data collected?

All information collected during this development exercise will be kept confidential by NFER and no individual or school will be identified in any report. NFER will not disclose names of individuals or schools involved in the tests, either in any reports arising from the use of this data or in any other way.
