This is a development of our Results Analysis Service. ResultsPlus Analysis is Free!As a result of listening to what you told us, we’re launching this ‘family’ of ResultsPlus services.Let’s start with some similarities in the family…Firstly, they’re all on-line – available through a simple log-in process from our websites.Secondly, they all complement our examinations processes – GCSEs and A-levels with EdexcelEach service also contributes to a central message: Understand more | Achieve moreAt Edexcel, we realise that the more you understand your students’ performance the better you can help them to achieve.The first three of these services – ResultsPlus Analysis… Skills… and Direct give you more information than ever before on the back of your GCSE and A-level results.And… (pause for maximum impact) they’re ABSOLUTELY FREE. All you have to do is register your staff and students to take advantage of them.(SPEAKER NOTE – If questioned “how’s it free?”. Answer is we’re only able to do this as a result of investment in technology in the marking process – EPEN. The investment was made to make marking more secure and more accurate. Because of how we mark, we get question-level information anyway. The information is just sitting there in our database. We discussed cost and how to charge at focus groups, but in the end, decided it should be a free service. IF PRESSED – say all we’re doing is IT development work to present database information into a user-friendly format – nothing to break the bank.)Results Plus Progress offers you a selection of diagnostic tests to help you understand students’ strengths and weaknesses BEFORE you take you exams with Edexcel. These will be paid-for tests, with prices very much guided by our discussions with a large number of head teachers and heads of department.
Here’s a typical school overview. YOU HAVE A COPY IN YOUR PACK – TIME TO FIND(give enough time for audience to take in the information)Straight away with this graphic you can see how your school performed, overall, for all EDEXCEL GCSEs.The top bar shows the proportion of each grade achieved out of all the GCSEs you took with EdexcelBelow this you can see, at-a-glance, the percentage of A*s and As and below that, the important benchmark of A* - C gradesThe line below helps you compare your school’s performance with the national cohort.The lower half of this screen has the ‘one click’ reports that we learned from our focus groups that you’d find most useful.(SPEAKER NOTE: There is a lot of information on this screen – take some time to point at the ‘one click’ reports and read out the titles of the reports. Reference the Improving Attainment and Personalised Learning section titles.)So… let’s see one of these reports: ‘Show me how the reports compare with last year’ (go to next slide)
This is the results analysis report for an individual student. FIND COPY IN YOUR PACK Here we can see: How many marks the student scored on each exam paperHow many marks the student scored on each questionThe overall grade a student achievedHere we see that Helen Mullholland achieved a strong C grade. (SPEAKER NOTE: Talk here around the supposed conversation a teacher might have with Helen at this stage…: If she was destined to get an A*, we can look at where Helen dropped marks and decided that it may be worth requesting a re-mark. If Helen was predicted a B, well, we can see that, in fact she achieved a strong C but fell rather short of the grade boundary for a B.)The gradeometer helps teachers and students make important decisions about ongoing study. Many schools for example, insist on a strong grade B in GCSE Maths as a prerequisite for doing AS Maths. This level of detail is now available and can be easily communicated to students and their parents.The colour coded bars below, help spot where the student dropped marks – where they might need to improve in a resit.
COPY IN YOUR PACKSo here we can see at the top of the screen (point to the tabs: Analysis, Exam Paper and Skills Map) that we’ve got these three tabs. At this group level, we’re looking at performance for Class 4B, Mrs Smith.We’ve seen what ResultsPlus Analysis looks like – performance at question level. Imagine now that we’ve clicked onto the Skills Map tab. The crucial difference with ResultsPlus Skills is this – immediate reference to the skill being tested by each question.This screen shows the skills overview, with scores displayed by Assessment Objective, and by Topic.These are shown as the score out of a maximum mark, and as a percentage. The national average scores for these areas are also shown in red for comparative purposes.Coloured shapes indicate if a student scored less than 35% on a topic (red), or between 35% and 70% (amber) or over 70% (green).Clicking on a topic gives more detail.
An excerpt of what student will see.Gradeometer – graphic displays how close student was to grades either side of the one they achievedWill also be provided with option to print a results statement and links to guidance on resits, remarks and progression (link to UCAS website)
