Transcript

  • 1. ysgoloscope Making education data in Wales accessible to parents, students and teachers
  • 2. Our inspiration Schooloscope.com Only English schools are searchable
  • 3. The problem Ofsted England has its way of inspecting and grading schools. Most of the data on Schooloscope relies on these Ofsted reports. Estyn And Wales has a different way of inspecting and grading schools. It’s not the same as Ofsted’s criteria.
  • 4. Soooo… <ul><li>We need to create a methodology for “visualising” the data in Estyn reports. </li></ul>
  • 5. Key areas based on Estyn reports’ summary <ul><li>Teaching How effective are teaching, training and assessment? </li></ul><ul><li>Achievement of pupils How well do learners achieve? </li></ul><ul><li>Happiness of pupils How well do the learning experiences meet the needs and interests of learners and the wider community? </li></ul><ul><li>Management of school How effective are leadership and strategic management? </li></ul><ul><li>Exam results based on the difference between the key stage results of the school and the average of Wales </li></ul>
  • 6. Translating numbers to words <ul><li>1 impressive (good with outstanding features) </li></ul><ul><li>2 good (good with no important shortcomings) </li></ul><ul><li>3 average (good features outweigh shortcomings) </li></ul><ul><li>4 disappointing (some good features but shortcomings in important areas) </li></ul><ul><li>5 poor (really important shortcomings) </li></ul>
  • 7. How does this look in practice? <ul><li>Pupils at the Bishop of Llandaff High School are achieving good results and levels of happiness are good . The exam results for key stage 3 pupils are well above average ; for key stage 4/GCSE pupils are well above average ; and sixth form pupils are average . The teaching is considered good and the school’s management is rated good . </li></ul>
  • 8. Linking to other data <ul><li>Teacher vacancies (eteach.com) </li></ul><ul><li>Average house prices in catchment areas (upmystreet.com) </li></ul><ul><li>School budgets (22 local authority sites) </li></ul><ul><li>Poverty and deprivation index (wales.gov.uk) </li></ul><ul><li>Crime statistics (police.uk) </li></ul><ul><li>Truancy levels (wales.gov.uk) </li></ul><ul><li>School buildings (wlga.gov.uk – data coming) </li></ul><ul><li>Boards of governors (individual school sites) </li></ul><ul><li>Headteachers (individual school sites and social media sites) </li></ul>
  • 9. Showing schools in the news <ul><li>Link individual schools to recent news about that school. (Aggregated news feeds using key word searches and RSS.) </li></ul>
  • 10. Step 2: Make the data actionable <ul><li>Contact school governors and head teachers. </li></ul><ul><li>User ratings on key areas, such as teaching. </li></ul>
