Title: The Learner Achievement Tracker


1
The Learner Achievement Tracker (LAT) Analysing
the Reports for School Improvement Ben
Fuller Assessment Adviser, Standards School
Effectiveness January 2006

What is the Learner Achievement Tracker?
  • Developed to coincide with the New Measures of
    Success part of Success for All
  • Four partners LSC, DfES, ALI, OFSTED
  • Basket of measures to contextualise performance
    of all providers of post-16 education
  • Application across the post-16 sector
  • No additional bureaucratic burden
  • LAT will be accessed through the Provider Quality
    Gateway at https//gateway.lsc.gov.uk

LAT Output reports
Type of LAT report What the report shows
Summary Charts (VA and DT) Overview of performance across different qualifications and across different subjects within a given qualification type compared to the national average
National comparisons graph Performance in a given qualification/subject compared to the national average across the full range of prior attainment
National chances charts Chances of a learner with a given prior attainment achieving a particular outcome
4
Value Added and Distance Travelled for 16 19
learners
  • Measures the progression in qualifications of
    16-19 learners based on their prior attainment
  • ie, how well do learners achieve post-16, based
    on their achievement at Key Stage 4?
  • Covers the majority of larger, approved
    qualifications taken by 16-19 learners,
    including vocational and ungraded qualifications

5
Value Added and Distance Travelled for 16 19
learners
  • VA for 16-19 learners will measure achievement
    in Level 3
  • graded qualifications, for example
  • GCE A and AS level
  • AVCE
  • BTEC National Diploma
  • DT for 16-19 learners will include other
    approved
  • qualifications at levels 1, 2 and 3 for example
  • NVQ
  • Foundation and Intermediate GNVQ
  • GCSE

6
VA and DT data
  • Data used to calculate the VA and DT for 16 19
    learners is gained directly from the the awarding
    bodies
  • VA score is average difference (in QCA points)
    between students results and national averages
    for each level of prior attainment
  • Providers will not be involved in collecting
    data for the measure
  • Providers check the accuracy of the data in the
    usual way (LAT first view based on unvalidated
    data, then amended later)

7
  • LAT Output Reports
  • Summary Charts of VA and DT
  • (institution-level data)

8
Summary Charts
  • VA
  • Shows the VA scores for each qualification type
    and an overall institutional VA score
  • For each qualification type, a chart shows the VA
  • scores for each subject (provided gt4 students)
  • Page 17 of the Quality Improvement Pack
  • DT
  • Shows the DT scores for each qualification type
  • For each qualification type, a chart shows the DT
    scores for each subject group (provided gt4
    students)
  • Page 30 of the Quality Improvement Pack

11
Application of the Value Added Summary Charts
  • First indication of performance across the full
    range of prior attainment
  • Identifies strengths and areas for improvement
  • (LAs and Inspectors) - a view of which schools/
    institutions are performing better/worse than
    national average (given prior attainment)

12
Key Questions
  • Are there types of course/qualification in which
    performance has been particularly strong or weak?
  • Are there particular subjects in which
    performance has been particularly strong or weak?
  • Given their prior attainment, are learners being
    matched appropriately to programmes of learning?

13
LAT Output Reports 2. National Comparison Graphs
(VA) (pupil level data)
14
National Comparison Graphs
  • Show the performance of the provider in a given
    qualification compared to the national
    performance in the same qualification across the
    full range of prior attainment
  • For example, NVQ Level 3 in construction or A
    Level History
  • Pages 21 and 34 of the Quality Improvement Pack

National Comparison Graph (Distance Travelled)
23
Application of the Value Added National
Comparisons Graph
  • Are learners at this institution making better or
    worse progress than would be expected when
    compared to the national picture?
  • Do learners with a given prior attainment (for
    example a low or high prior attainment) make
    better or worse progress than expected?
  • Have any learners achieved higher or lower than
    expected?
  • What levels of achievement/target grades can be
    expected from current cohort of learners given
    prior attainment?

24
LAT Output Reports 3. National Chances Charts
25
National Chances Charts
  • Show the chances of a learner with a given prior
    attainment achieving a particular outcome in a
    given qualification at a nationally average
    institution
  • For example, the chances of a learner with a
    given prior attainment achieving grades A E in
    A Level History or achieving a Level 1, 2 or 3
    NVQ in construction
  • Pages 27 and 40 of the Quality Improvement Pack

26
Example of a Value Added National Chances Chart
(Fails not included)
27
Application of the Value Added
National Chances Chart
  • VA chances charts can be used to support learner
    progress by helping
  • Target setting
  • To monitor learner progress
  • To identify where support is required
  • To identify appropriate courses for individual
    learners

28
Issues for further exploration
  • Learners with missing or no prior attainment
  • Context variables
  • Customising the LAT
  • Treatment of AS levels in the VA measure
  • Treatment of fails in the VA measure
  • Use of success rate for DT

29
