Insight 2 Raise

Insight 2 Raise is an Excel based programme available to schools that produces an analysis document similar to the new RaiseOnline. As it is completed by the school the analysis can be produced as soon as the results are available. This allows schools to have a full value added based analysis immediately upon release of GCSE results. The package also allows schools to update if there are any changes in outcomes. The common approach allows schools to effectively compare outcomes.
