Points of interest

  • Results are either for Key Stage 1 (assigned at the end of Year 2) or Key Stage 2 (assigned at the end of Year 6). 
  • Government changes to SATs mean that, after summer 2015 (inclusive), students have results stored in a different format to those before:
    • Before 2015, students at KS1 will have a national curriculum level (e.g. "Level 1", "Level 2A")
    • Before 2015, students at KS2 will also have a national curriculum level (e.g. "Level 3", "Level 4B")
    • After 2015 (inclusive), students at KS1 will have a teacher assessment or judgement (e.g. "EXS")
    • After 2015 (inclusive), students at KS2 will have a scaled score (e.g. "87", "115")

Discovering Assessments

To access, for example, KS2 Maths SATs results for Year 11 students, we'll need the assessment with name "KS2 Maths NC Level Pre 2015" and, for this sandbox environment, with an ID of "8": 

Discovering Students

You can then query the students endpoint to get students for Year 11:

Discovering Results

Their IDs can then be used as a parameter to get results for KS2 Maths SATs in the form of a grade_id.

Looking up grades for an assessment

To match the grade_id to a result name, you can then look up the grade set for an assessment.
