No reporting Tolerances Applied

Why has Pearson with a lower expected outcome come out with a higher pass rate than AQA?

To allow one set of Qualifications to have no reporting tolerance is just remarkable.  Schools have reported the Coursework for IGCSE was marked down but without the above information there is no way I can show what this blog hopped to achieve.  They did have a slight drop in the pass rate but I am as convinced as before that this would not have been reflected in the expected progress figure.

The new Ofsted data dashboard certainly looks like it will take prior attainment into consideration but I feel the table above still shows the results that it is based on can not be used to show a true reflection of all pupils progress.

Thanks for reading
Chris Beeden
