Report on ANAs 2011 - Data driven decision making

  1. 1. Report  on  the    Annual  Na/onal  Assessments   (ANAs)  of  2011   Presenter:   Dr  Muavia  Gallie  (PhD)   Educa/on  Moving  Up  Cc.  
  2. 2. Average  %  scores  a0er  re-­‐marking   45   Eastern  Cape   40   Free  State   Gauteng   35   KwaZulu  Natal  Average  Percentage   Limpopo   30   Mpumalanga   Norther  Cape   25   North  West   20   Western  Cape   South  Africa   15   Gr  3  Literacy   Gr  3  Numeracy   Gr  6  Languages   Gr  6  Mathema/cs  
  3. 3. The  following  four  tables  indicate  what  percentage  of  schools  fall  into  two  categories,  using  marks  obtained  from  the  re-­‐marking  process.      •  The  first  category  is  clearly  struggling  schools,   defined  here  as  schools  where  95%  or  more  of   the  learners  performed  at  the  ‘not  achieved’   level  (Level  1).    See  the  ‘!!’  symbol  in  the  tables.  •  The  second  category  is  schools  showing   promise,  defined  here  as  schools  where  at  least   half  (50%)  of  learners  achieved  at  levels  3  or  4,  in   other  words  at  least  the  ‘achieved’  level.    See   the  ‘✓✓’  symbol  in  the  tables.  [p.32]  
  4. 4. Conclusion  •  Is  is  scary  that  not  a  single  province  average  was   beyond  50%;  •  ANAs  is  good  for  yearly  progress,  but  school   principals  have  these  data  every  week,  or  at  least   every  month,  at  their  disposal  to  track  the   development  of  the  learners  and  the  produc/vity   of  the  teachers;  •  We  urgently  need  to  capacitate  principals  to  be   aware  of  the  data  available  for  their  use,  and  not   the  current  interpreta/on  that  it  is  only  for  the   use  of  others;  •  DATA  DRIVEN  DECISION-­‐MAKING  is  at  the  heart   of  the  conversa/on.
