Insight Assessment Platform

Important updates

Term 1, 2022 Updates

The Insight Assessment Platform, including the English Online Interview (EOI) and the Mathematics Online Interview (MOI) has now reopened.

Teachers and School Administrators should note the following information:

  • ABLES - an additional 4 assessments are now available for Government schools. These assessments are ABLES Mathematics, ABLES Critical and Creative Thinking, ABLES Movement and Physical Activity, and ABLES Digital Literacy. Historical assessment results from ARCOTS is now available in Insight for these assessments. 
  • RVEAL - reporting updates now provide more information to teachers, including showing the pathway the student took through the assessment, sample questions that represent the questions seen by the student, and a 'Tag profile' report that allows teachers to customise how they view RVEAL results. 
  • Schools that have received TLDS's from Early Childhood centres should now link these to the student in Insight to ensure they become part of the child's record.

Mathematics Online Interview (MOI) Update

29 January 2019

The MOI has now reopened. A number of changes have been made to improve the use and presentation of the assessment and collect more specific response data.

The improvements to MOI include:

  • implementation of more relevant item types and formatting to make the assessment more user friendly,
  • addition of restrictions to free text response boxes to improve the consistency of data entered, and
  • the introduction of a section-based menu to strengthening navigation between items. The section-based menu will appear at the start of each assessment, when being branched out of a Section, and on completion of a section. Users have the option of submitting the assessment (to calculate growth points) or continuing with another Section.

Online Transition Learning and Development Statement

12 July 2018

The Transition Learning and Development Statements (TLDS) will be completed by early childhood services and shared with schools using a new online tool (Online TLDS) hosted on the Insight Platform.

Early childhood services will receive an email with log in details to access Insight at the beginning of Term 3.

To support the introduction of the new tool, the Department provided additional funding to each funded kindergarten service to support their early childhood teachers as they become familiar with the new online TLDS and access the range of available resources including:

  • help line, tip sheets, video, and face to face training support by the State Library of Victoria
  • a step-by-step online TLDS user guide
  • family resources including a guide and introductory letters in 31 languages.

Support for schools including tip sheets and a user guide will be released soon.

For further details go to the Complete an online transition statement page.

A number of improvements have been made to the Mathematics Online Interview for 2018. The updates include:

  • Edits to improve clarity of instructions.
  • Reduction of visual clutter including green highlighting, sad and smiley faces, and unnecessary free text boxes.
  • Fixed branching issues based on advice from educational experts, for example, the loop in Section B has been addressed.
  • Growth Point 0 will now be awarded to a student for a Section when they answer at least one question (correct or incorrect) in that Section, but not enough to achieve a Growth Point greater than 0.
  • A Foundation Detour report is now available.
  • Strategies are now required to be input for questions where a strategy response contributes to Growth Point calculation. A message alerting users to select a strategy will appear if the required field is left blank.
