Mayfield High School Data Project

I want to investigate whether Key Stage 2 results is essential in early stages of education for increasing an individuals IQ. But in order to do that I will need data and information of pupils from Yr7 and 11. I have chosen these two because; this should be a good way of finding out if the three different Yr groups have a better or worse Key Stage Results than the other. This will also show if Yr7 have a more ‘higher’ education than Yr11 because of year difference.

My Hypothesis is that: The higher the Key Stage 2 results are, the higher the IQ is.

In order to find out if my hypothesis is right, I will need to perform and collect further information of pupils from Yr7and Yr11.

I will need:

• The pupil’s Key Stage results (Maths, English, Science)
• The pupil’s IQ, to compare and discuss if my hypothesis is right.
• The pupil’s gender, to compare if girls/boys are smarter than the other.

I will find the following information from the Mayfield Data Project.

The reason why I have chosen to perform

Middle

 Standard KS2 Levels KS2 Maths Results Frequency Lvl.1 0 0 Lvl.2 0 0 Lvl.3 4 4 Lvl.4 1 1 Lvl.5 5 5 Lvl.6 1 1

 Standard KS2 Levels KS2 Science Results Frequency Lvl.1 0 0 Lvl.2 0 0 Lvl.3 3 3 Lvl.4 2 2 Lvl.5 5 5 Lvl.6 0 0

By looking at each KS2 subjects, Yr7 Girls achieved the minimum of a Level 3. The Highest Level Yr7 Girls achieved was a level 6 only in Maths, which only one pupil reached. Pupils also achieved level 5’s from 5 different pupils in their subjects.

Now I will investigate the Yr7 boys KS2 results and compare their results with the Yr7 Girls to find out which gender is smarter.

 Pupil no. Year Group Gender KS2 English KS2 Maths KS2 Science 1 7 Male 2 3 3 2 7 Male 2 3 4 3 7 Male 3 3 3 4 7 Male 3 3 3 5 7 Male 3 3 3 6 7 Male 5 5 5 7 7 Male 5 5 5 8 7 Male 5 5 5 9 7 Male 5 5 5 10 7 Male 5 5 5

As before, I have created another table to help me in my investigations. I’ve arranged the 10 Yr7 male students from lowest to highest by Key Stage 2 results.

Conclusion

By a close result, my conclusion is that the Girls again manage to show that they are the smarter Gender by defeating the Boys at KS2 Maths.

As before, both Boys and Girls managed to achieve the minimum of a level 3, similar to the KS2 Maths results. But the boys, again managed to get a student more than the Girls as four boys got a level 3, whereas three Girls got level 3’s. Only one boy managed to get a level 4, unlike the Girls as two girls managed to gain a level 4. The Girls then managed to get five level 5’s as before the other two subjects, but on the other hand, the Boys also managed to achieve five level 5’s also. This has now proved my previous theory that 5/10 boys and girls have the essential understandings in each subject. And both boys and girls didn’t manage to achieve a level 6 which, in summary that: both boys and girls have equally understandings of KS2 Science.

But in overall, based on my evidence: Yr7 Girls are smarter than the boys.

My next part of this Investigation is to compare and contrast the Yr7’s Key Stage 2 results with their IQ. By doing this, I can build more evidence in finding out if my Hypothesis is right: ‘The higher the Key Stage 2 results are, the higher the IQ is’.

be correct because again, as the table shows that in the majority of the year groups, the males weigh more than the females. Moreover, the standard deviation is also more than the females and so is the correlation coefficient showing that the male's data is much more spread than the females.

I have chosen the Year 7 and Year 11 year groups because they are at the opposite age scale in a school and should show different results and how height and weight could change during 5 years. I am going to put my information into tables because this will allow the information to be more easily viewed.

Systematic Sampling This is a method which involves a system which involves regularity. For example you could take every tenth pupil in the list. This type of sampling is unbiased and it does not need the data to be in any sort of particular order.

There are a few results which are quite far away from the line of best fit, but there could be a number of reasons why this is. It could be that they did poorly on an exam which suggests high IQ and low KS2 Result.
