Secondary phase value added measures in performance tables

Date: 28.08.2018

According to FFT there are four main issues with Progress 8, the value added measure rolled out to all secondary schools in 2016.

  1. It takes no account of school context.
  2. It only includes pupils who were on roll in the January of Year 11.
  3. It offers incentives to pursue particular qualifications.
  4. It can be disproportionately affected by outliers.
