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.
