Met up with an old pal today - smart fella.
We were talking about the #OFQUAL
#AlevelResults fiasco. What neither of us could understand is why they standardised against previous performance of schools which tells you nothing about individuals.
2/4 If they really can't trust teachers' predicted grades (which seems ridiculous), surely they have significant previous performance data for the majority of pupils in the shape of their GCSE results (or even KS2 stats). As a normalising variable, this gives much richer data
3/4 to correlate the performance of individuals to and insight into whether teachers may have inflated predicted grades. This would remove the aggregating effect of a school's historically poor performance and prioritise pupils with clear ability.
4/4Appeals could then focus on those for genuinely extenuating circumstances may have impacted previous exam performance.

Why has this not been spotted as the obvious flaw in the algorithm (as if needing the algorithm wasn't flawed enough!)
