In this blogpost we’re going to look at the relationship between secondary school inspection outcomes and Progress 8 scores.
Both are imperfect proxy measures of school quality and so we might expect them to be related.
But how closely are they related? And has that changed since the return of performance data?
The COVID-19 pandemic interrupted both inspection and national tests and examinations.
Progress 8 was published in 2022 for the first time since the end of the 2018/19 academic year.
