Unvalidated 2015 Update: For strategic groups / local authorities

At Learning Plus UK Data Ltd. we work hard to ensure our products give you the information you need in the format you prefer, with the aim to help you improve learners’ outcomes. The changes in this update of the Post-16 LPUK Datadashboard reflect your, our clients’, feedback as well as the latest developments in the education sector.

1. Updated formatting

We’ve grouped the sections of the Post-16 LPUK Datadashboard according to the new 16-19 Accountability Measures. This will make it easier for you to navigate throughout your Datadashboard and to make connections between your current data and the future accountability measures.

Please note, that at this stage we have only changed the names of the sections, not the methodology; we will be updating the methodology as and when the new accountability measures are introduces and are in the DfE performance tables.

2. 3-year trends

For the first time this summer, we give you 3-year trend data in your Unvalidated Update as shown by the 3-year trend Headline Measures and Curriculum Heatmaps. The measures for previous two years, 2014 and 2013, are based on the validated NPD data, while the 2015 data are based on the unvalidated NPD data. For this reason, we advise to use caution when comparing data across these years. Nevertheless, we believe that the 3-year trends will greatly help your planning for the upcoming academic year.

- The APE expressed as a fine grade as well as a score.

- Data on students’ progress in English and maths from statistical first release published by the Department for Education. Please note, the aggregated LA level figures are based on data supressed at a centre level, due to small numbers. Please treat these statistics with caution.

APRIL 2014

The Post-16 LPUK Datadashboard Spring Update has been updated with the 16-18 Minimum Standards for the 2012/13 academic year.


MARCH 2014

The Post-16 LPUK Datadashboard Spring Update including the validated 2013 results data is now online. You can access your Datadashboard, or the demo, via our homepage.


FEBRUARY 2014

As we are nearing the release of our Post-16 LPUK Datadashboard Spring Update including the validated 2013 results data, we would like to take this opportunity to update you on the changes in the DfE L3VA dataset. These changes will be reflected in our Post-16 LPUK Datadashboard Spring Update.

Cohort Change
  • The cohort analysed is now End of Key Stage 5 students only, to reflect the cohort included in the KS5 Performance Tables.
  • This means the L3VA no longer reports ‘in-year’ data – so the AS level data provided will only be for those who are at the end of Key Stage 5 study, including AS level results that were taken in previous years, but weren’t continued on to A level.
  • Pupils are now allocated as to where they are on roll, not where they sat the exam, in order to bring it in line with the Performance Tables measures.
Academic/Vocational/A level
  • New academic and vocational level aggregations are provided.
  • A student will count towards the respective measure if they entered a qualification listed as academic or vocational greater or equal to the size of an A level in 2012/13, and if they are at the end of Key Stage 5 study.
  • The A level aggregation counts all A and AS levels (including applied) and provides a VA score for students at the end of Key Stage 5 study.
  • These are only provided at centre level, and are not aggregated up to LA or national level.
Presentation of VA Scores
  • The data is now provided as proportions of a grade instead of raw points.
  • This means, for example, instead of having a VA score of +15 at A level, this would now read +0.5, as there are 30 points between grade boundaries at A level, so this is half a grade above expected.
