How to interpret diagnostic results
See above for instructions on how to view diagnostic results for individual pupils.
The diagnostic level indicates where within the grade/year group the student has been placed in relation to your school’s standards/curriculum.
Each level is made up of a number of skills, ordered according to the order they are usually taught in school. If a student is placed at ‘Grade 3.2’ we believe they are working at a level, around 20% through third-grade skills.
In the English Curriculum, the diagnostic score will correspond to the Year level. Example a Diagnostic score of 2.60 means the pupil will be working on around 60% through the 2nd year level skills or 60% through Year 2.
In the Scottish Curriculum, the diagnostic score will be in accordance with the Year level (Early to Fourth). Example a Diagnostic score of 2.60 means the pupil will be working on around 60% through the Second Level skills. A diagnostic score of 0.30 means that the pupil is working through the Early level skills at a 30% completion.
Diagnostic score of 0.00
If your student has received a diagnostic score of 0.00, it does not mean that they have failed to answer any question correctly.
A 0.00 means that the student will be starting at the beginning of the skill plan as they did not get a minimum of 80% accuracy in the easiest skill to progress further in the diagnostic.
What does ‘In progress’ mean?
If you see ‘In progress’, the pupil has not completed the diagnostic and you will have to wait until the pupil completes the diagnostic before seeing their results.
