End of topic tests
After a topic has been taught, or at regular intervals throughout the course, teachers often set tests for their students. These are used to decide the next steps in learning, known as formative assessment and to provide a snapshot of attainment and progress known as summative assessment.
Tasks is perfect for setting end of topic tests because it includes exam style questions that can be easily configured by the teacher.
Question selection is automatic saving teachers time because they don’t need to do any additional preparation for the test other than following a simple task creation wizard. An end of topic test can be set in less than 3 minutes.
With self and peer marking options the teacher can also avoid lots of marking if they choose to.

Tasks can include multiple-choice questions that are marked automatically; Terms questions that ask the students to write definitions to subject specific terms and Advance questions that require extended written answers. So called, “level of response” or “chained response” questions are also included in Smart Revise. Those are questions marked in assessment objective bands instead of a mark per point made.
Most applications and websites provide students with the same number and the same set of questions in an end of topic test. Smart Revise is different because it will select new random questions each time a task is created. The teacher can also choose the number of questions they require with an indication of the time the test will take students. Ideal for fitting a test into a whole lesson.
The teacher can clone tasks if they want to set the same questions for multiple classes or conduct resit assessments. They can also swap out questions to make more bespoke and tailored assessments.
