How to record the Phonics Screening Check
If you import pupils and data into Insight via a CTF from your MIS, Insight will automatically import any historical Phonics screening check data held there.
Insight imports these assessments under the subject Phonics.
The score is imported using the assessment name Main Assessment and the mark scheme Phonics Scores (0-40).
The outcome is imported using the assessment name Outcome and the mark scheme Phonics Outcome.
