Chapter 10: Achievement of CfE levels by Local Authority

As this information is new and currently 'experimental', comparisons across local authorities should not be made without full knowledge of local authorities' approach to assessment. The magnitude of the variation between authorities has reduced compared to 2015/16, and is summarised below.

At a national level, there has been a notable change in levels of reporting of achievement of Fourth Level in S3 (see section 1.6), this is also observed in the local authority level results.

  • The variation in the percentage of pupils achieving the expected level in reading by local authority:
     
    • P1 (Early Level): From 70 to 91 per cent (difference of 21 percentage points)
    • P4 (First Level): From 65 to 89 per cent (difference of 24 percentage points)
    • P7 (Second Level): From 64 to 88 per cent (difference of 24 percentage points)
    • S3 (Third Level or better): From 77 to 99 per cent (difference of 21 percentage points).
  • The variation in the percentage of pupils achieving the expected level in writing by local authority:
     
    • P1 (Early Level): From 65 to 90 per cent (difference of 25 percentage points)
    • P4 (First Level): From 58 to 86 per cent (difference of 28 percentage points)
    • P7 (Second Level): From 49 to 85 per cent (difference of 36 percentage points)
    • S3 (Third Level or better): From 76 to 98 per cent (difference of 22 percentage points).
  • The variation in the percentage of pupils achieving the expected level in listening and talking by local authority:
     
    • P1 (Early Level): From 76 to 94 per cent (difference of 18 percentage points)
    • P4 (First Level): From 73 to 90 per cent (difference of 17 percentage points)
    • P7 (Second Level): From 68 to 93 per cent (difference of 25 percentage points)
    • S3 (Third Level or better): From 80 to 99 per cent (difference of 19 percentage points).
  • The percentage of pupils achieving the expected level numeracy variation by local authority:
     
    • P1 (Early Level): From 71 to 94 per cent (difference of 24 percentage points)
    • P4 (First Level): From 60 to 90 per cent (difference of 31 percentage points)
    • P7 (Second Level): From 54 to 86 per cent (difference of 33 percentage points)
    • S3 (Third Level or better): From 64 to 96 per cent (difference of 32 percentage points).
