The Government values different outcomes at different levels of education. Progressing to higher levels of learning, for example, is more important at foundation levels. For this reason, educational performance indicators (EPIs) are weighted differently for the different grouped qualification levels, as shown in the table below.

The weightings for 2018 are as follows:

EPI weightings for Option 1 – all four EPIs

  Qualification Completion Course Completion First-Year Retention Progression
Level 1-3 25% 25% 0% 50%
Level 4-7 non-degree 50% 50% 0% 0%
Level 7-8 40% 25% 35% 0%

EPI weightings for Option 2 – Lead EPIs

  Course Completion First-Year Retention
Level 1-3 100% 0%
Level 4-7 non-degree 100% 0%
Level 7-8 40% 60%
