5 key differences between Basic & Premium

We often get asked about the differences between the Basic and Premium versions of EduKit Insight. With the Basic version providing so much for free, how does the Premium version compare?

We've put together this quick guide to explain the key differences. If you think Premium might better suit your needs, we’d love to hear from you. Just book a short call at a time that suits you.


1. Set up is easier

EduKit Insight Basic requires you to upload a file of student names. But don’t worry - we provide you with easy-to-follow instructions to help you get started.

UK Schools: EduKit Insight Premium easily connects to your school’s MIS system. This means you don’t need to re-upload data (as students leave and join or at the start of a new year) as EduKit Insight Premium updates your information automatically every night, saving you time.

Non-UK Schools: EduKit Insight Premium allows you to upload more data, such as ethnicity, special needs etc allowing you more in-depth analysis as you use the tool.


2. Analysis is more in-depth

With EduKit Insight Basic you are able to see how many students have been deemed high risk based on their wellbeing responses. With EduKit Insight Premium you are able to see which students have been classified as high risk.

Also, EduKit Insight Premium automatically benchmarks, with colour codes, every student against their year group. Use the slider on the image to see the difference on the student page.

Also we benchmark your school against the hundreds of schools using the Insight nationwide and in your region (if UK).

This allows you to see you school's results in context - enabling you to make more informed decisions about priority areas.


3. Cohort Creation is more powerful

EduKit Insight Basic allows you to add year group, gender and Pupil Premium information so you can undertake basic analysis of your results.  

However, with EduKit Insight Premium, you are able to create cohorts of students based on their wellbeing results and you can slice and dice data by ethnicity, SEN code, achievement, behaviour points, EAL, attendance and much more.


4. Progress is more evident

EduKit Insight Basic allows you to take a snapshot of wellbeing and to log your interventions for that academic year. Premium enables you to compare progress at a whole school and individual level, over time, as with Premium you have access to previous year data. 

With Premium, you can also track wellbeing and intervention effectiveness over time and create case studies, showcasing individual students who can stand as examples of your progress. Students get new profile pages every year, but with Premium you can easily see how a student has progressed and all interventions logged against them over time.

5. Support is more personalised

With EduKit Insight Basic you have email support within 48 hours whereas Premium comes with immediate over the phone support between 8:30am - 6:00pm.


So in summary, both Basic and Premium are great, easy-to-use tools to help you make sense of student wellbeing at your school.
