I've been looking at this link.

http://www.nfer.ac.uk/nfer/research/ass ... scores.cfm

Can anyone help me understand it. Is it saying that a score of 122 is actually the 93rd percentile (ie a higher score than 93%) of the pupils sitting any test? or is it saying that the normal distribution is adjusted for each county (ie say Bucks have room (effectively) for 35% of pupils and therefore the curve needs to be amended to reflect this? thanks

Bucks standardisation works on a different mean.

The standardisation is modelled to produce 30% over 121.

Thanks for this

would this apply to just the 11 plus tests? i am trying to prepare academic evidence and have found the standardisation table from NFER and trying to interpret the results from NFER tests conducted at the end of year 5.

Does anyone know whether a score of say 122 in NFER VR in June (not the 11plus test) would equate to what is in the table (93rd percentile) or is it as the note above says, the top 30%

its a bucks primary school by the way

any help gratefully received
