Analysis (Insight) Headlines NCER - Content Editor 20 September 2019 09:13 Updated The headlines page gives you access to that key data for which you are frequently asked, but will also visualise and reinterpret those figures to make them accessible to a wider audience. The text snippets and charts on the page can be easily copied and used to support your schools reporting processes. Printing & Help If you're reading this guide, you probably don't need to click about this page, but if you do, you'll find some basic information about the page you are viewing. We've also included a link to this guide. If you want to print the page, you can, but consider whether the person you're printing for should have access to Analysis (Insight), or whether you could screenshot the parts you want. Options There are a number of options you can change on this page... Ac. Year... There will be a maximum of 3 academic years at any given point, the current academic year will usually become available after the spring census. Area... The default value for this option is All Areas: Key Indicators, if you're a primary school, this is a combination of indicators from all key stages, and also key absence indicators. A secondary school will see key stage 4 and key absence indicators. Selecting a specific area, such as key stage 2, will include all indicators for that area, not just those that are considered key indicators. If you want to know what indicators are available for each area, take a look at the following articles... Primary Indicators Secondary Indicators Comparator... The default comparator is national, changing the comparator will replace the national values on charts, and in text, with your chosen comparator. The rank section of the page will no longer be displayed if a comparator other than national is selected. Summary The selected card in the summary section determines the focus of everything below it, choosing KS1 maths expected standard will mean that all 3 sections below focus on this indicator. The selected indicator always jumps to the left of the carousel, so when you're scrolling through indicators you'll always know what you've selected. The card itself includes the main value for the indicator, and also some useful conversions, such as how many pupils achieved the expected standard and the number in the eligible cohort. Value Section This section will focus on the value of the indicator. We can see in the example below that a value of 62.5% of pupils achieved the expected standard in KS1 maths. The value is visualised in a chart, while the accompanying text gives more context to this value. The trend over academic years is shown in a bar chart, along with how your value compares to the national, or comparator you have selected, in that year. The adjacent text adds context to the data displayed in the chart. Comparison Section If you want to know how your school compares to the national average, or LA average, you'll find those answers here. The gap between your value and chosen comparator is shown in the first chart; this is shown for up to 3 academic years, depending on the availability of data. As in other sections, the accompanying text will add context to the data in the chart. The second part of the comparison section is all about relative change, the difference between your value and the selected comparator over academic years. While your value might have increased from one academic year to the next, the national value may have increased more. Your relative change can be negative, even when your value has increased between academic years. Rank Section This section is all about rankings, your school will have a rank between 1 and 100, 1 being the best. You'll also be grouped into a decile (groups of 10), and you'll see the lowest and highest achieving school values in that decile. If you're ranked 1st, you'll see the chart marker at the top of the chart, while those ranked 100 will be at the bottom in the red section.
