Detail

These assessment component files (A Comp files) are for suppliers developing software that will help local authorities, schools and academies to electronically submit 2014 assessment data using their MIS.

These files specify the framework against which assessments of pupils’ attainment in the national curriculum are made. For each key stage or year group, they specify the subjects, subject components or attainment targets (for example, reading and writing are components of English), nature of assessment and possible outcomes. The framework also includes special education needs and English as an additional language (EAL) criteria.

The files include:

  • A Comp - the main assessment component file containing all valid parameters
  • A Subj - contains subject codes and descriptions
  • A Type - gives access to codes and descriptions of all assessment methods
