But equally, teachers need to put the process in perspective and must never become too hung up on figures. There are some situations where test results paint an inaccurate picture, such as with widely differing cohorts. Two autistic pupils in a year group of a junior school, for example, might distort the test results so that the whole year appears to be underachieving. This is an issue that has been recognised by many governing bodies and the solution could be to create a controlled sample taken from across the ability range to see how a similarly composed group performs over time.
