In this special report article, Part 1, we are looking at a few of the issues around these new accountability measures that you ought to know about. Before we explore those its important that we have a good look at what exactly Attainment 8, Progress 8 and the new GCSE scoring schemes are in practice. If you are a parent or guardian of a child in primary or secondary school and you do not know about these new national education “accountability measures”, then you could be courting a serious disadvantage for your child, as the process of applying these monitoring schemes profoundly effects children's learning, self-esteem and life prospects. Would you like our co-op to form local information forums around parental engagement with these points and issues, do you need help understanding what’s going on? Do you want to help others? Would you like us to work with your local school to enhance STEAM learning (that’s STEM + the Arts)? First of all let’s discuss briefly how Attainment 8, Progress 8 and the GCSE grading system works. + engage with polls: “ [ ePoll ] “ The Futurist is about real engagement.

What is Attainment 8? Attainment 8 notionally measures a student's average grade across eight subjects – the same range that count towards Progress 8 (which will be discussed later). The Attainment 8 measure is said to be designed to encourage schools to offer a broad, well-balanced curriculum. This measure is taken when the student is aged 16 (they are therefore in schools’ Year 11 stage) and is compared to what can be viewed as a more subjective “value added” measure taken at the end of primary-aged schooling. The eight subjects fit into three groups: 1. English and maths. These subjects carry double the score, they are referred to as “double-weighted”. There are special rules around how English and Maths qualifications are added to this group and how to count them: see the Department for Education's Progress 8 website for more details. It should be noted that being double-weighted implies that they are more important than other subjects. Do you believe that this is true? 2. English Baccalaureate (Ebacc). Under this group we have the sciences, computer science, geography, history and languages. 3. Open group. Any remaining GCSEs and other approved academic, arts or vocational qualifications sit in this group.
