Abstract

Since 1992, the UK Government has published so-called ‘school league
tables’ summarizing the average attainment and progress made by pupils in each statefunded secondary school in England. In this article, we statistically critique and
compare prominent past, current and forthcoming value-added and value-table
measures of school performance. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the different measures as well as their underlying statistical models.
