Seeing the Gaps in your Assessment Attainment

See the GAP between your key demographics and their inverse on our Summative Assessment > Analysis > Attainment Expectations page, then take action to decrease this gap.

Just click into the filters at the top of the page, and select Demographic vs Inverse vs Gap in the Group By field, then click Save Changes.



You can then see the gap between these demographics and their inverse:

  • Gender Gap
  • Compulsory School Age (5 - 15) Gap
  • EAL Gap
  • Gifted Gap
  • Gifted + Talented Gap
  • Mobile (Y5 & Y6) Gap
  • Out Of Age Group Cohort Gap
  • SEN Gap
  • Talented Gap
  • Disadvantaged Gap
  • Ever 6 FSM Gap
  • FSM Gap
  • Pupil Premium Gap
  • Looked After (In Care) Gap


Here's what the numbers mean:

  • Any fields showing 0% means no students in that demographic group are working at that Attainment Expectation.
  • Any fields showing N/A means that there are no students in that demographic group for the assessments selected.
  • A positive gap means that a higher percentage of the demographic is achieving this Attainment Expectation, whereas a negative Gap means that a higher percentage of the inverse demographic is achieving this Attainment Expectation.



In the example highlighted above, you can see the difference in percentage between the Disadvantaged and Not Disadvantaged students. You can see that 100% of Disadvantaged students are working below their target, but only 37.5% of Not Disadvantaged students are working below their target. This means there is a large disadvantaged Gap.

You would want all your demographics to have the same spread of data, with your Disadvantaged students working on average at the same level as your Not Disadvantaged students. If they're not, you may want to provide extra support for these disadvantaged students in the form of interventions.

Just click the group of students to take further action.
