Scatter Graphs have landed

8th December 2020

The ideal complement to the Progress Matrix, for when you want to compare more granular data such as test scores… Set your own reference lines, show number/% in each quadrant, group pupils, and reveal pupil names.

Head to Cohorts > Scatter Graph, and enjoy! More information in our guide here.

Tables Facelift

10th November 2020

The Tables report has had a facelift! Certain features have been on our wishlist for a while, and we wanted to make the whole experience of building table templates a little slicker.

Attendance Thresholds

6th February 2020

We wanted to make specifying attendance more flexible and distinctive for schools and trusts, so we’ve introduced ‘Attendance Thresholds’.

The user can define their attendance thresholds and select the familiar evaluation bands, so you can configure exactly how you want your attendance to look. The thresholds will then define how Insight evaluates attendance percentages, and the options available when filtering and grouping pupils.

Introducing Assessment Types

24th October 2019

We wanted to make it faster and safer to enter your data into Insight, so for 2019-20 we’ve introduced the concept of an ‘Assessment Type’.

Assessment Types define the various non-statutory assessments you want to record in Insight.

They have an associated Assessment Name, and can limit the subjects and mark schemes that can be used when entering data, so you can configure exactly how you want your assessments to be stored. This speeds up data entry and reduces the chances of mistakes being made when data is entered. Teachers won’t be able to choose the wrong subject or mark scheme by mistake.

Changes to Statutory Assessment

27th August 2019

Over the 2019 summer holiday, Insight changed how statutory assessments are stored. Specifically, some of the assessment names have changed.

Where possible we’ve copied existing assessments and updated reports to use the new names, so things should just work. However, please contact the Insight support team if you have any concerns.

Our hope is that from 2019-2020, we have much a clearer definition of statutory data in Insight and fewer problems with data in the wrong place.
