VA-13 - Value-added over Year 13

Student reports

Progress of each student in Year 13

SeLIS Progress of each student in Year 13 Example

This table shows the subjects they did in Year 13, their average Year 12 score and the Year 13 progress made in each subject.

Note: Some subjects are a combination of two or more domains of standards. For example, Health and Physical Education are a combination of Health standards and Physical Education standards.

Progress graphs for each student (comparing year 12 and year 13 progress)

SeLIS Progress graph for each student comparing years 12 and 13 Example

With the Year 13 value-added feedback, each student's progress across a range of subjects can be compared between Year 12 and Year 13. In the above example, the overall progress for this student was better in Year 12 than in Year 13.

Subject reports

Results per subject for Year 13

SeLIS Results per Subject for Year 13 Example

A table of results is given for each subject. The average Year 12 weighted NCEA score is given along with the important 'StdResidual' column on the far right. The 'StdResidual' is the value-added score that shows the progress of students that did that subject in your school.

Progress of each subject in Year 13

SeLIS Progress of each subject in Year 13 Example

The line through the data is based on the weighted national results of all students in New Zealand who did NCEA in that subject in Year 13. The average Year 12 scores are on the X axis and the weighted Year 13 scores are on the Y axis. Each school has their pupils scattered around the national line for that subject.

For each student, their value-added score (or residual) is the vertical distance from their position to the national line. This vertical distance is called the 'residual'. To produce the value-added score for each student, the residuals are standardised to a mean of 0.0 and a standard deviation of 1.0. The value-added scores can be interpreted as:

  • 0.0 The student has kept pace with others of like ability in that subject. He/She will be represented as a point on the line.
  • Above 0.0 The student progressed further than others of like ability in that subject. He/She will be represented as a point above the line.
  • Below 0.0 The student lagged behind others of like ability in that subject. He/She will be represented as a point below the line.

SPC (longitudinal) charts for each subject in Year 13

SeLIS Longitudinal Progress Statistical Process Control Charts each subject

Statistical Process Control (SPC) charts show longitudinal progress of each subject over a number of years.
Schools receive a different SPC chart for each subject.

The background region shows standard error at 2 and 3 standard deviations.

National progress for each subject is 0.0. If a school's progress for the subject lies within the inner region (blue/green area) then any difference between the overall average progress and the school's progress could be due to chance. If a school's progress is in the brown region or beyond, there is more than chance involved.

Institution Report for Year 12

SeLIS Institution Report for Year 13 Example

The institution report monitors the progress across subjects within a school.

National progress for each subject is 0.0. If a school's progress for the subject lies within the inner region (blue/green area) then any difference between the overall average progress and the school's progress could be due to chance. If a school's progress is in the brown region or beyond, there is more than chance involved. The background region shows standard error at 2 and 3 standard deviations.
