Introduction to the new Pupil Pages
Insight's pupil pages have had a facelift! Rather than having a single scrolling page, pupil information is now stored in a series of tabs. This is more intuitive and less cluttered than the previous format and will give us greater scope to add more features in future.
In this guide, we'll cover the new format of the report including the main features of each tab, including:
- Viewing pupil information and adding interventions/groups in the profile tab
- Selecting assessment data and determining how it is displayed in the assessments tab
- Viewing objective-level assessments
- Making notes and adding attachments
- Printing and exporting data from the pupil pages
As previously, to access the pupil pages, click on the Pupils button at the top of the Insight screen.
This will display a list of pupils according to your most recent selection, which in this case is Year 4.
By default the Profile tab is displayed. This contains school census information: UPN, Date of Birth, class, key characteristics, date started, and colour coded attendance*.
Below the main pupil information is a list of Interventions/Groups (if applicable). These are bespoke, school-defined groups that can be set up in Enter Data > Interventions/Groups. Alternatively you can assign a pupil into a group by clicking on the +Add Group button here on the Profile tab.
The next tab covers Assessments. By default, all assessments for all subjects made in the current year are shown.
You view data relating to other years by clicking on the year dropdown. The following screenshot shows year 3 assessment data for this year 4 pupil.
The Options button allows you to select what data is shown on the pupil page, including progress metrics for the year and key stage. It also allows you to group assessments by subject (the default) or by name. The latter would group all the standardised test data together, for example.
The Assessments tab also has a dropdown to change the data view from a Table (the default) to a graph (for the year
The graphs for year option essentially converts the table of data shown above into a graph that displays assessments for each term:
The graphs for all years option will show a record of data from the earliest assessment point, which, in the example below, is over 4 years.
Here, we can see standardised scores and reading ages over time. Again, you select which data is displayed via the options button.
Clicking on the objectives tab shows the marks given for each objective assessed so far in the current year. Click on the Grid dropdown to change subjects.
The Notes tab allows you to store comments and evidence in the form of attachments (including photos) for each pupil, as required.
A record of comments, evidence and other important information can therefore be built up over time. This is a particularly useful tool for recording additional information on pupils with SEND.
You can print and save the contents of tabs by clicking on the Print button.
You can also download all data pertaining to the selected pupil to Excel by clicking the Export button.
