This will be followed by an in-depth exploration of the new format RAISE report as well as the latest dashboards produced by Ofsted and FFT.
Particular attention will be paid to the mechanics of new value added (progress) measures and other key performance indicators, with pupil level data used to provide clarity on how these measures are calculated.
The course will then demonstrate some practical tips and tricks for using advanced functionality of RAISEonline to present your data in the most fair and accurate way possible, before taking a quick look at target setting in FFT Aspire, to gain insight into future outcomes and potential value added.
