Progress 8 is Ofsted's new exams results measure to replace the previous GCSE grading system.
The below information has been extracted from the AQA website.
Progress 8 measures a student's progress between Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 4 across eight key subjects.
It shows whether students have performed to expectation, based on a value-added measure using Key Stage 2 English and Maths as a baseline. It's checked by getting a sample of Year 11 students to sit English and Maths reference tests in March before their June GCSEs.
Progress 8 only compares schools with similar intakes.
This new measure is designed to encourage schools to offer a broad, well-balanced curriculum and will be used towards determining the 'floor standard' for schools.
