Mark Schemes: SAT 2016+ TA

The SAT 2016+ TA mark scheme in Insight allows you to record your KS1 and KS2 teacher assessments. The following tables show which codes are to be used for each subject at KS1 and KS2, for the 2017-18 academic year (this will change for 2018-19).

The safest way to enter your teacher assessments is via the Enter Data > SATs Teacher Assessments page, which will only allow you to enter valid options for each subject and key stage. It will also make sure you enter P Scale assessments where required.
