The Transition Matrix

You can find our Transition Matrix by going to Students > Assessments > Summative Tracking > Analysis > Transition Matrix.

Our Transition Matrix allows you to compare:

  • Student's starting points in an assessment to their current grades
  • Student's starting points in one assessment to their current grades in another assessment
  • Student's starting points in two different assessments
  • Student's current grades in two different assessments
  • Many more combinations

For example, you can use the Transition Matrix to compare what students are currently achieving in Maths compared with their KS2 SATs result. You’re able to see what students who started with a 2b in their SATs are currently achieving to see if they have they made the amount of progress you expected. You can then see the percentage and number of students with each mark combination.

You can choose the assessment you would like to appear on each axis including the assessment period you would like to view the assessment for by clicking the filters at the top of the page.

You can DfE standardised assessments (e.g. the Year 6 SATS Level), summative assessments, ad hoc assessments or standardised assessments.





For the matrix below, I have chosen to compare my current year 11's current GCSE grades against the grades they got at KS2. Here you can see one student is performing well below the expected level compared to their peers.



Choose whether to display total numbers and percentages or student names. Simply click the filters at the top of the page, and tick or untick the Display student names box.




You can find out more information on the groups of students that make up each statistic by clicking on the box. A slide over will appear, listing the students in that group. You can then take additional actions such as adding the students to an intervention by ticking the boxes next to their names and clicking the blue pencil icon.



Click the student name to navigate to Assessment section of their Student Profile.
