Hi bucksdaddy

The post sally-anne refers too is this :

viewtopic.php?t=12872&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=10basically i used a number of FOI requests and appeal requests where people had been able to get raw scores and used this and a bit of stats to produce a formula modelling raw to ss scores whith age corrections

From your mock scores it would be interesting to know what they mean by no age adjustment i assume they throw all the scores into the pot and produce a distribution and then calculate the ss score from this, if the age distribution of the children taking the test is spread evenly across the whole year then this would mean that the ss score to pass should be equivalent to a mid year born child ie jan/feb. The spread of raw scores across the age gap getting 121 is around 5 and is usually 71/2 for sept born and 66/67 for aug born and so 121 for a mid year born would be 69 ish. With the real test my data showed that a score of 116 would normally reflect a raw score of 61-2 for an aug child and 66-67 for a sept child. So something is (as sally-anne says) not equivalent with the mock results you have given
