Data Analysis & Outcome Measurement

At Greatwood, we measure the progression outcomes by calculating student pass rates via adhering to the NOCN awarding body's criteria, which are also validated by independent internal and external verifiers. From this data, Qualification Success Rates (QSR) calculations can be collated using the ‘Classroom-Based Provision and Overall Method’ producing ‘Success, Achievement and Retention Rates. QSR continue to be one important measure of assessing provider performance and quality within government supported education and skills training.

Overall Predicted Success Rates for 2014-2015 Academic Year

Having identified the importance and need for measuring progression outcomes of both our primary and secondary aged students; for the start of 2015/2016 academic year Greatwood will be putting into practise a new knowledge management system whereby schools, as part of their service agreement, are required to submit each student’s attendance figures from the term prior to attending Greatwood, as well as their attendance record during the period that they attend Greatwood, followed by the term after they have completed a Greatwood programme. A report carried out by the Department for Education in 2010, explains that there is a clear link between poor attendance at school and lower academic achievement. Of pupils who miss more than 50% of school only three per cent manage to achieve five or more GCSEs at grades A*-C including maths and English. It also highlights that 73% of pupils who have over 95% attendance achieve five or more GCSEs at grades A*-C.

In addition, Greatwood will be using the Spence Children’s Anxiety Scale and Rosenberg Self Esteem Scale to measure soft outcomes from students using interactive vote pads.

In conjunction with this, Greatwood will require schools to submit a case study for each student, after completion of the programme so that we are able to further measure impact and outcome. Case studies provide a means for highlighting and extracting practical principles and methods for shaping and accelerating progress - "The case study is a research approach, situated between concrete data taking techniques and methodological paradigms (proof).”
