Progress 8, Attainment 8 & Examination Results

Progress 8

Progress 8 is a new secondary accountability measure aimed at measuring the progress of pupils across a selected set of 8 subjects.  It is a type of value added measure, meaning that pupils’ results are compared to the actual achievements of other pupils with the same prior attainment.  It has been introduced alongside another new accountability measure; Attainment 8.

Attainment 8

Attainment 8 is a measure of a pupil’s average grade across a set suite of eight subjects.  Grades will be measured on a 1-8 point score scale, rather than the current 16-58 scale.

On this new scale, 1 is equivalent to a Grade G GCSE. An increase in one point will represent an increase of one GCSE grade up to 8, which is equivalent to an A* GCSE.
