My DS's school report and SATS results came out today. This is the first time he has had a report from this school and it is in a very different format to his old school.

In one section it has the following:

Calendar Age
Reading Age
Standardised : 120
Spelling Age
Standardised : 125

I can understand the reading and spelling age.
But I don't get the standardised mark. What does this relate to? Or is this something specific to his school?

I am not around tomorrow, so cannot ask the school, and on Friday it is the leaving service in church then they go home so no chance then either!

Thanks to anyone who can shed light on this for me!

I don't think so as they seem to relate to the Reading Age and Spelling Age

let me type it as it is

CA (June) 10.10 | RA: 13.11 | Standardised : 120 | SA: 15+ | Standardised: 125

I am assuming the initials are Calendar Age, Reading Age and Spelling Age - but I could be totally wrong! Could be racing aptitude, roaring ability, sulking age - all of which could be appropriate!

It's often referred to as Reading or Spelling Quotient

(Reading age/chronological age) x 100.

so if reading age is same as chronological age then score would be 100 eg 9.5/9.5 X 100

a score over 100 indicates that reading age is above chronological age.

margin of error usually means scores between 85 and 115 are "average" so 120 is above average.

Brilliant - thank you very much. What a shame that the apparently above average spelling and reading cannot be transposed into creating elegantly consructed phrases!!!

What an even bigger shame that the school couldn't provide this information in an easily understandable format. :?

I agree, although the accompanying letter did say that the numbers were for comparison with previous years - so it looks like this format has followed the children through the school for several years. But as we have only done the final term of year 6, we had nothing to compare it to and no idea what it meant.

It would make more sense to have full explanatory notes though!
