SAT levels - expectations within each sublevel?

Is there a list (or link) that gives an indication of what teachers/assessors are looking for within each sublevel. DD seems stuck on the same level and I wondered if I could see what I could do extra with her to push her on a bit and give her a little helping hand.

TIA smile thanks

I was just wondering about the same thing - DS1 was a 5c, and is now a 5c++. I was wondering how many plus signs until he reaches a 5b? smile

Sublevels ate effectively made up to show progress within a level.

Eg secondary maths level 6 is to able to reflect a shape.
For me 6c is reflecting in a given line.
6b is reflecting in an axis.
6a is reflecting on a grid where the line is given as x=2 or y=3.

Hi Anne:

If you join Times Education Supplement (TES) for free - just sign up as a volunteer in a school and you can then access their resources:

There is a nice breakdown of targets by NC sub-levels for maths/ reading here: www.tes.co.uk/ResourceDetail.aspx?storyCode=6033626

and for writing: www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/sublevelled-writing-targets-for-children-6033393/

By the way TES why not just let parents join?

That TES breakdown of sublevels probably only applies to that school as sublevels don't officially exist. That school has clearly decided to make some up, but as a secondary maths teacher, their maths sublevels are completely meaningless to me.

where does it say parents can't join TES? There are lots of contributors on the site who are not teachers but have an interest in education. I would have thought most parents fall into that category!

Agree with what noblegiraffe says about the sublevels. I have an LEA produced set of maths sublevels, which look different to that document from the TES. I suspect I could probably give the same child different sublevels using both documents.

Given that levels can be a bit of a best fit judgement, you aer probably not going to know what she can and can't do based on the level you have been given either. I think your best bet is to ask her teacher what she needs to do in order to move up. Or ask her if she knows what her targets are.
