Mark Schemes: Age
The Age mark scheme lets you to enter pupil age assessments into Insight.
Pupil ages can be entered in years and months, either as a decimal or in the format Xy Xm. For example, a score of 8 years and 9 months would be entered as either 8.9 or 8y 9m.
If you enter an Assessment Date alongside an Age assessment, Insight can calculate the child's actual age at the date of the assessment and evaluate the result as green (at expectation) or red (below expectation). Insight will show the number of months between the child's actual age and assessed age.
The number in brackets is the difference between the assessment age and the pupil's chronological age at the date of the test, in completed months.
