National geography data?
« on: November 11, 2009, 06:15:07 PM »
 ???  Hi!  I have my exam results meeting with the Head coming up and would like to compare my department's results with the geography national average.  Does anybody know where I can find this information for GCSE and KS3?  Any help would be much appreciated!

I have not seen KS3 data either - not sure if it will be collected as such - there is no requireemnt for cntral collection of TA for "foundation" subjects.

I don't think the 2009 data will ever be available will it?  My understanding is that although schools still need to report their KS3 levels in geography to parents and governors etc at the end of the keystage, they will no longer have to report it centrally.  Therefore I can't see how local authorities or QCDA will ever get hold of KS3 data for geog etc from schools in future.  I think the 2008 KS3 data for geography was the end of the line.  I'm not sure if it was ever really useful anyhow, as there was no way of knowing how uniformly robust teacher assessed levels were from all over England.
