Data and Assessment Conference:
The Accelerator to Outstanding Outcomes for ChildrenFriday 16th March 2018 | Mercure Southgate Hotel, Exeter | 09:15 - 15:30
The Data and Assessment Conference provides an opportunity to consider assessment both as a tool for learning and as a means of generating useful, accurate data. Delegates will have the opportunity to explore how to successfully measure, analyse and interpret data to drive school improvement, performance and pupil outcomes.
Through keynote presentations, in-depth case studies and interactive discussions, delegates will hear from a range of professionals supporting schools to better interpret the data presented in ‘Analyse School Performance’ (ASP), the Ofsted Inspection Summary Data Report (ISDR) and related sources following the introduction of the reformed accountability and performance measures.

Life After RAISEonline – The Future of Education Data
Craig Whitlam and Chris Toyne, Directors, Maze Education
After 10 years RAISEonline has been replaced by Analyse School Performance which is a system produced using modern software but with a narrower scope than RAISEonline. Alongside the release of ASP an accreditation process was run by the DfE for outside providers to gain early access to data. This session will demonstrate the impact of accreditation on schools and highlight the other systems and solutions available. Maze Education gained early access to the DfE data and have created their own systems and solutions for schools to enable detailed self evaluation from headline indicators, through pupil groups right down to how one pupil answered one question in a KS2 test.
