Months from Expectation (MfE) Data

Learn about how to take the information in SchoolTalk further by downloading it as 'Months from Expectation' (MfE) data.  This short video will summarise how MfEs can be used to give much clearer insights into progress and achievement.

MfE data can also support schools to identify classes and groups that stand out as being particularly successful at enabling progress and which classes need additional resources to support their progress effectively.  In this way a school can take action to ensure equity for all learners.

Learn also about how this data can be correlated with other data sets such as standardised tests, surveys and attendance to help build a more holistic view of the learners.
