4Matrix for Welsh Schools

We are proud to announce that 4Matrix includes a range of new BETA tools and features to support the Welsh KS4 School Performance Measures. Existing customers will be contacted directly with information about the changes and to guide them with the required setup tweaks.

If you are a Welsh school and would like to try 4Matrix, please read the information below and follow the sign-up link.

Supported Performance Measures

  • Level 2 Threshold Inclusive: The Level 2 threshold requires 5 GCSE or equivalent passes at C grade or above with a 40% limit on non-GCSE qualifications. The ‘inclusive’ element requires a C grade or above in Welsh/English Language and a C grade or above in Mathematics or Numeracy.
  • Level 2 Threshold: The Level 2 threshold requires 5 passes at C grade or above with a 40% limit on non-GCSE qualifications.
  • Level 1 Threshold: The Level 1 threshold requires 5 passes between A*-G grades with a 40% limit on non-GCSE qualifications.
  • Capped 9 Points Score: The first five grades are subject specific with the last four grades being the learner’s best grades. There is no limit on non-GCSE qualifications.
  • The new Welsh Baccalaureate performance measure: New for 2018, see a complete breakdown of individual pupil and subject performance.
  • All other features for tracking subject and pupil performance as per the standard 4Matrix licence.

Demo Data and Qualification Notes

4Matrix comes pre-loaded with a demo database that is designed to work with the English performance measures. If you would like to use a demo database designed for Wales, please download the file from the Wales Demo link below (requires login). You will need to ask your IT Dept. to work through the server-side install and use the default (English) database, but once the installation has completed they can Restore the Wales demo over the top (using the relevant function in the 4Matrix Network Manager tool). We can assist with this if required.

Wales Demo DB

If you use the demo database for England, you will need to import a Qualification File from the first link below which contains almost 1000 unique qualifications for Wales for 2017, 2018 and 2019. Once downloaded, this can be unzipped, and the .txt file dragged and dropped into the Admin > Import Qualifications dialogue. If you cannot find the qualification you're looking for after importing this file, please use the 2nd link below to request a missing qualification.
