Ysgoloscope

  1. 1. ysgoloscope Making education data in Wales accessible to parents, students and teachers
  2. 2. Our inspiration Schooloscope.com Only English schools are searchable
  3. 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. 4. Soooo… <ul><li>We need to create a methodology for “visualising” the data in Estyn reports. </li></ul>
  5. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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>
