Value-Added League Tables

Recommended Posts

Research conducted for the National Association of Head Teachers by Durham University's Curriculum, Evaluation and Management Centre has found that the new value-added league tables introduced by the Department for Education and Skills last year, are very misleading and contain "fatal flaws". This report claims that the information is skewed by school size, pupil turnover and children's social-economic background. As a result of this research the NAHT general secretary, David Hart, has urged the government not to publish value-added results for tests taken by pupils this term.
