Is there any feel of how a standardised score feeds into a raw score. I.e three children with same d.o.b, one scores 224 the other 214 and third 234. Assuming say 150 questions is that likely to be a couple of marks between them or 10-20?


I did obtain a copy of the Age Standardisation Tables from the KE Foundation for the KE exams many years ago(2004 to be precise). This was at a time when they age standardised the Maths, VR & NVR sections separately and then added the Age standardised scores together to get a consolidate score. I recall you needed to average about 118 Age standardised score per paper to get through to the say Camp Hill Boys.

Below is a posting I sent at the time,

For example, in the Birmingham KE VR Tests in 2004 , to achieve a Standardised Score of 118 a child aged 11.18 years on the exam day would have to achieve score 71/100, whereas a child who was only 10.22 years would only have to score 65/100. Quite a difference.


For the Warks exam, I believe that 2 Age Standardisations are performed - 1 for Verbal questions, and 1 for Numerical/NVR combined. Historically, different question types used to have different Age Standardisation Tables. e.g for 2006 to achieve a section Age Standardisation score of 114 for a child aged 10.85 years on the day of the exam the child would need 64/100, 44/82 and 50/70 correct raw score for Verbal, Numerical and NVR respectively.

Sorry I don't have the old tables to hand (I had a clear out many years ago) - hope this helps
