This analysis is the second in a series of reports produced by the Education Policy Institute, working
in partnership with Renaissance. The purpose of this research programme is to ensure that schools
and policy makers have access to robust data on the performance of different pupil groups, so that
support is targeted effectively to those who need it most as we continue to recover from the

The purpose of this report is to provide benchmarking data to users of Renaissance Star Reading and
Renaissance Star Maths assessments. It allows users to see how outcomes for their pupils compare
to all pupils nationally – both against averagesYou  at different points in the academic year and across
the whole attainment distribution. It also shows how these results have changed over time so that
schools can better understand the patterns of attainment that they are seeing.

In addition, we have linked data from Star Assessments with attainment data at the end of key stage
2 to allow us to see, for a given level of outcome in Star Assessments, what are the most likely
outcomes in these end of key stage statutory assessments.

Results are presented as series of analyses offering insights from the dataset of all Star Assessments
followed by detailed benchmarking tables.
