What are the changes to the new SATs tests?
The new and more rigorous SATs test this year are the first to test the new National Primary Curriculum, which has been taught in schools since 2014. (SATs stands for Scholastic Aptitude Test or Scholastic Assessment Test.) The new SATs tests have been designed to give a measure of attainment in three subjects areas: reading; maths and spelling, punctuation and grammar.
These tests are set and marked externally, and the results are used to measure the school’s performance (for example, through reporting to Ofsted and published league tables). Your child’s marks are used, in conjunction with their teacher's assessment, to give a broad picture of their levels of attainment.
The Key Stage 1 SATs tests are taken in Year 2; and the Key Stage 2 tests are taken in Year 6.
These new tests are more demanding and rigorous than previous SATs and the results are not comparable to previous years.
In prior years, attainment at the end of KS2 was measured in levels, with level 4c being the average expected. In these new SATs the expected level is set to be 100, with scores ranging from 80 to 120. Any score above 100 is regarded as a pass and any under as a fail.
It is generally understood that 100 in the new SATs would equate to level 4b in the old SATs, which confirms that the new SATs have a higher standard.
KEY STAGE 2 READING
The reading test is a single paper with questions based on three passages of text. Your child will have one hour, including reading time, to complete the test. There are a selection of question types, including: Ranking/ordering; Labelling; Find and copy; Short constructed response and Open-ended response.
KEY STAGE 2 GRAMMAR, PUNCTUATION AND SPELLING TEST
The grammar, punctuation and spelling test consists of two parts: a grammar and punctuation paper requiring short answers, lasting 45 minutes, and an aural spelling test of 20 words, lasting around 15 minutes. The grammar and punctuation test includes two sub-types of questions: selected response and constructed response.
KEY STAGE 2 MATHS
Children sit three papers in maths: Paper 1 arithmetic, 30 minutes: Papers 2 and 3 reasoning, 40 minutes per paper.
Paper 1 consists of fixed response questions, where children have to give the correct answer to calculations, including long multiplication and division. Papers 2 and 3 will involve a number of question types, including: multiple choice; true or false; constrained questions and less constrained questions.
KEY STAGE 2 SCIENCE
Not all children in Year 6 take science SATs. However, a number of schools will be required to take part in science sampling: a test administered to a selected sample of children thought to be representative of the population as a whole. For those who are selected, there are three papers: Biology, 25 minutes, 22 marks; Chemistry 25 minutes, 22 marks; and Physics 25 minutes, 22 marks.
At its heart, we know that education is a simple thing. Whoever we are, wherever we may be, we all need to experience the joy of achievement, our own and others … and then we need great teachers.
