The coincidence of today’s publication of SAT’s results along with the teacher assessment has been said will create confusion with too much information being released at once.
Critics are accusing the Department for eduction (DfE) of reasoning an overload of information that could confuse. Frankly if my child was at a failing school I would prefer to quickly identity if my child’s performance was an indication their endeavours or how much it may have been influenced by poor teaching standards.
It may be a little late to correct the SAT’s results, but at least I would have potential answers on the overall educational standards to, hopefully, allow me to make adjustment before next term. Confusing maybe, but the potential answers are all there. The the coincidence of the two pieces of information should be very useful.
