In order to hold executive leaders to account for educational school performance, governing boards need to ensure that they have been given the right information. This includes having access to the right data, which can be used to evidence the progress being made against the agreed strategy.
A key source of data is Analyse School Performance (ASP) - the replacement service to RAISEonline. The DfE launched an updated and improved version of ASP in July 2017. More than 27,000 users are already using ASP - help with logging in is available here.
The service now includes 2017 Question Level Analysis (QLA) and named pupil data for those with appropriate access levels. QLA data enables primary schools to assess how well their children performed in different aspects of the curriculum. It also supports secondary schools in identifying strengths and weaknesses for their incoming year 7s.
Additional reports have now been added to the service as well as enhancements made to the usability following user feedback and including improved printing and navigation functions.
At the end of September, Key Stage 2 data will be available in ASP - this is provisional data for 2016/17. Breakdowns of data such as disadvantaged will be added at the end of October along with Key Stage 1 and Phonics data for 2017. Provisional Key Stage 4 data will be available towards the end of November.
