Analyse School Performance (ASP) – Data management
September 28, 2018
Last week, the Department for Education (DfE) has released new data management functionality within Analyse School Performance (ASP).
ASP is the Department for Education’s (DfE’s) replacement data service for RAISEonline. ASP provides school leaders with a detailed breakdown of how schools, and different pupil groups (with a particular emphasis on disadvantaged pupils), have performed in key stage 1 and 2 (for primary schools), key stage 4 (for secondary schools) and key stage 5 (for 16-19 providers). ASP is a free to access service which requires users to login through the DfE’s sign-in portal. Those governing are entitled to login details and should speak to the individual who sends data returns at the school (in the first instance) who can help them set up an account.
The changes to ASP this week allows school named users to create a custom view by removing one or more pupils from their phonics, KS1, KS2 or KS4 data to carry out “what if” scenarios. School users are able to toggle between their default and custom views for most headline reports (a list of reports and data items which cannot be updated by data management are shown on the Data management homepage). Data management is available for the most recent year’s data held in ASP (i.e. 2017) and will be updated as and when new data becomes available.
