OUTLINE

  • PSLE is a placement exam

  • What is the PSLE Aggregate SCORE?

  • Why is T-Score used?

  • Definition & Calculation of T-Score

St Anthony’s Canossian Primary


St anthony s canossian primary school

PSLE - a placement exam

  • Need to reflect the relative achievement level of pupils within their peers

  • Places pupils into different courses according to their academic ability

  • Enables posting to secondary schools by merit and as far as possible into a school of their choice

St Anthony’s Canossian Primary


St anthony s canossian primary school

Are they raw scores?

What is PSLE Aggregate Score?

It is a sum of scores.

What are these scores?

St Anthony’s Canossian Primary


St anthony s canossian primary school

The PSLE Aggregate Score

  • incorporates performance of pupils in all 4 subjects

  • allows pupils to be ranked fairly

St Anthony’s Canossian Primary


St anthony s canossian primary school

Why are RAW SCORES not used ?

  • Different subjects have different levels of difficulty

  • So are the spread of marks from the average mark, i.e. the standard deviation(spread = standard deviation)

Transformed Score or T-Score

A need for standardisation of the raw scores

St Anthony’s Canossian Primary


St anthony s canossian primary school

What is T-Score?

  • It gives the relative position of a pupil’s performance as compared to the performance of all the other pupils in that subject

  • The raw mark obtained in the exam only shows how good the pupil is in that subject, not how good she is as compared to others

St Anthony’s Canossian Primary


St anthony s canossian primary school

How is T-Score calculated for each subject?

(X

where X: pupil’s mark for the subjectY: average mark (mean) scored by all pupilsZ: spread of marks around the average mark (standard deviation)

(50 - 68.0)

14.0

Example:

  • Pupil’s mark (X) in exam = 50.0

  • Average mark (Y) scored by all pupils = 68.0

  • Spread of marks (Z) around the average mark (Y) = 14.0

T = 50 + 10

= 37.14

St Anthony’s Canossian Primary


St anthony s canossian primary school

How is the Aggregate

Score calculated?

By adding the T-Scores of

the 4 subjects

Finally,

all pupils are ranked according to their Aggregate Scores

St Anthony’s Canossian Primary


St anthony s canossian primary school

Posting to Secondary School

  • All pupils are ranked by merit according to their PSLE Aggregate Scores

  • Thus, a pupil will be considered for admission for her choice of school before another pupil who has not performed as well in the PSLE

  • This is subject to availability of places in the school of choice

St Anthony’s Canossian Primary


St anthony s canossian primary school

Posting by Postal District

  • If the pupil fails to get into any school of her choice as she has failed to meet the cut-off score of her choices, she will be posted to a school nearest to your home

  • She must still meet that school’s lowest cut-off score

  • Therefore, if you have shifted / are planning to shift within the year, please inform the school of your new address BEFORE November

St Anthony’s Canossian Primary
