RAISEonline currently reflects key stage 2 and key stage 4 validated data. We have assessed the scale of change between the validated and final versions and, nationally, we found that there were only a small number of amendments that were required. The number
of changes did not warrant the expense and time required to update the site and complete the extensive quality assurance we apply to our datasets prior to release.
All schools should compare RAISEonline against the performance tables –
https://www.compare-school-performance.service.gov.uk/ – to see if there were any final changes to their data. Progress data (and associated confidence intervals) may have changed even if the school submitted no data changes. This is because progress is
a relative measure, and compares the progress of pupils in the school against similar pupils nationally.
Schools can produce a report which takes into account the final changes to their data by using the ‘data management’ function in RAISEonline to make local amendments and produce a ‘school’s own’ report. Information on how to do this is in the RAISEonline
