Trends Primary school performances P1-P6

From January 2017 the children went to school as full-fledged children, with uniforms, books and pens. In April 2018 the library was opened. In the weekends and holidays the children can study there with their own text books. While in 2016 the children went to12 different primary schools, this was reduced in 2018 to only 5 different schools. A total of 161 children from the community go to the primary school.

At the end of every Term (3 terms a year) a child gets a report with the Marks obtained and the Ranking in the class (total P1, total P2 etc) e.g. nr. 10 out of 80 children or 15 out of 56 children.

Explanation of the Graph "Ranking"

If a child has a ranking 22nd out of 100 children it gets a score of 100 – 22 = 78 in the graph, a ranking 15 out of 30 children gives a score of 50 (halfway the class)

The graph below shows clearly that the average ranking scores of the MAC children are better than non-MAC children and that there is clearly rising line from the end of 2016. However, in some classes there is a large number of MAC children, this makes it difficult to improve the ranking performance. They are more competing amongst themselves.

Explanation of the Graph "Marks obtained"

For every subject a child can get a maximum of 100 marks.

If there are 5 subjects and a child has a score of 350 Marks he or she has a score of 70% in the graph.

The performance of the children has improved a little again.
