KS4 Performance Dashboard

What is the KS4 Performance Dashboard?

The Key Stage 4 Performance dashboard is designed to give users Snapshots of KS4 exam and assessment performance at the click of a button. All key performance indicators are covered in line with the published DfE measures. Schools have multiple options to analyse data whether for intervention or student tracking purposes and management of the data is straightforward. In addition to all key measures of progress and attainment, it also has two powerful query options for instantly identifying student individual performance against DfE estimates or the school’s own targets. The data is drawn directly from Bromcom’s own exam or assessment modules without the need to download and manipulate data before trying to analyse it. In addition to all headline measures, each performance area: progress, attainment, EBacc entry and achievement, English and maths attainment at grades 5 and 4, as well as a dedicated comparison of disadvantaged students for diminishing the difference, all add to the power of the output. A set of quick measures for reference completes the dashboard and this area includes subject analysis, enabling leaders to drill down to see performance analysis by subject, class and student. All charts on the dashboard expand to reveal associated students who each can be selected individually to inspect their individual performance and progress.

Enables markset mapping as if it were a gradeset
School can use its own grades
DfE values are consistently applied
Subject MappingAll assessment subjects require a related QN to be included in analysisAssessment data follows the same discounting rules as exams
Markset MappingEnables integers and decimals to be used in analysisIntegers and decimals can be used in analysis – see above
Timetabled Subject MappingSchools can add “Not Same as Template” subjects for class analysisWhere the assessment subject is not timetabled, this data can still be analysed by class.
KS4 Headline Figures Dataset ManagementSchool creates datasets for key stage 4 cohorts for either exams or assessmentSchool creates datasets based on the KS4 cohort definition and associated attainment estimates
Focus on Assessment or exams results both of which are drawn directly from the system with minimal set up*
Assessment aliases allow multiple assessment types to be returned as a single entity thus permitting OData and ad hoc reporting in addition
