CHN 12a - CHN 12f: Average Total Tariff Score, by SIMD Quintile
Summary definition

The average total tariff score for pupils in the senior phase (S6 based on the S4 cohort), including the average tariff score by Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD 2012) Quintile

The tariff scale provides a measure of the latest and best achievement in each subject area for national qualifications and a range of wider awards. Qualifications are awarded tariff points based on their SCQF level.

Why do we measure this?

Average tariff scores are calculated from the latest and best achievement of pupils during the senior phase (S4-S6) across a range of awards included in the benchmarking tool Insight. This offers a wider measure of achievement toconsider alongside the narrower attainment measures in CHN4-CHN7.

An outcome consistently included at both the national and local level across the UK is the desire to increase the educational attainment of children from deprived backgrounds. Therefore as well as benchmarking the attainment of all school children, it is important to measure the attainment of this sub group of pupils who live in deprived areas
