Value-added / Progress
Alps (Advanced Level Performance System) is the result of over 30 years of careful research and development, initially at Greenhead College, Huddersfield, by Dr Kevin Conway CBE, the Principal, and over the last sixteen years at Alps.
Each Alps indicator has a benchmark thermometer. The thermometer is created by taking scores achieved by every school and college included in that indicator and ranking these from best (top) to worst (bottom). Scores at key percentiles are then used to benchmark your performance. Each percentile is also given an Alps grade.
The numbers running down the centre of the thermometers show how Alps grades are identified for this
indicator. These run from 1 (best) to 9 (worst). The grades are related exactly to the percentiles as shown.
