Topic Based Strengths and Challenges

Our Analysis breaks the Reading and GPS tests down to distinct topics.

This first page is from our Reading report. It shows the strengths and weaknesses for all pupils, boys and girls, and how it compares with the Entire Year and the National averages. In this example, it shows that girls did particularly well in “Meaning of words in context”, and both genders did not do as well in “Identify details”.

Detailed Analysis by Question

Our Analysis breaks the tests down to individual questions.

This second page is from our Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling report.

It shows the top 10 questions which are most above or below the National average, so you can see the types of questions that your pupils found difficult or easier than average. It compares your class results against the entire Year 7, and against National.


Subject Specific Pupil Profiles

Our Analysis breaks the tests down to individual pupils.

This is an example of our GPS Pupil Profile. It shows for Christopher his strengths and challenges. Of the major topics (the ones with the most marks available in the SATs, highlighted in purple), Christopher was 5% above the National average in Spelling and “Verb forms, tenses and consistency”, and 12% below in Punctuation.

It also shows a summary for Reading, Maths and Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling.

These are delivered as part of the Class Analysis – already pre-arranged into the class groups.


DAISI Y7 English Baseline Assessment

How can it work in 2021?

In absence of 2021 KS2 SATs we can still provide our essential detailed analysis using one of our two primary Question Level Analysis products…

Our Baseline QLA uses a full past SATs papers to give your school a true baseline assessment of your pupils. This is the closest reporting format to the full Transition Pack for teachers and students alike.

  • Your pupils would sit the 3 tests (2 x SPaG and 1 x Reading)
  • Tests marked in school
  • Results entered into our spreadsheet and returned to us.
  • Once the data is received, we will create your analysis.

Our NEW Concise QLA gives schools the choice to run shorter SATs based tests but still brings that essential detailed analysis that schools need. We have created a bespoke hour-long test in SPaG which provide full KS2 curriculum coverage. This reduces the amount of testing and marking and still provides the same detailed analysis you require.

  • Your pupils would sit 1 concise test (SPaG) and the 1 Reading test (Past Paper – QLA Baseline Analysis)
  • Tests marked in school
  • Results entered into our spreadsheet and returned to us.
  • Once the data is received, we will create your analysis.

Having marked the papers, you would need to enter names, UPNS and the individual marks into our spreadsheet, with:

  • 0 = Question attempted, no marks.
  • 1 = Question attempted, 1 mark.
  • 2 or 3 = Question attempted, 2-3 marks.
  • N = Question Not Attempted.

You will receive full instructions and a link to our spreadsheet with your order acknowledgement. 


Ordering is Easy

Choose which of our two options you would like to follow and then contact the DAISI Service by email or phone 0115 876 4020 to discuss your requirements. We will discuss the two options with you before pointing you to an appropriate order form.

Please note, the Transition analysis remains the same regardless of which option you choose. Due to the numbers of pupils within a secondary school being much higher than a primary school class, we cannot offer the same prices as the primary analysis versions of the product.

Once the data is received, we will produce your analysis within days. All reports sent by secure email.
