DS 10, Y6, got his NFER test results today. There wass nothing to explain them, and I can't find anything online to help me understand them. Some posts online say 100 is the national average - where does this figure come from? He got 68 for maths and 19 for reading, but out of what? I'm horrified, and he's upset too. He's no superstar, but has consistently done reasonably well at school, top of the middle, so these figures have completely thrown me, if '100' is the average. Was he asleep that day?

I'm starting to get a little hysterical here, am actually quite teary. Please help shed some light on this!

100 was the average for SATS. Scores could only range from 80 to 120 so it sounds like you are talking about a different test.

Do you have any more info on what the NFER test was?

Nothing, other than he's in band C. It's ridiculous, sending home such a document with no supporting information.

You poor thing - shocking communication from the school. When our pre prep did nfers we got % results, showing where they say compared to the population, so presumably 60% meant that only 50% of children were better, if you see what I mean but that may not be how these were calibrated either

I hope school were able (and swiftly willing) to explain further
