National curriculum assessment provides a measurement of achievement against the precise attainment targets of the national curriculum rather than any generalised concept of ability in any of the subject areas. The national curriculum standards have been designed so that most pupils will progress by approximately one level every two years. This means that by the end of KS2 pupils are expected to achieve Level 4 and by the end of KS3 pupils are expected to achieve Level 5 or Level 6.
