SMART REVISE REDEFINES REVISION AS A CONTINUAL PRACTICE THROUGHOUT THE COUSE, AND NOT JUST AT THE END
Effective revision is a very personal process. For students in a class, the teachers can enable all the features and switch the topic filtering off so that students can choose how to revise for themselves.
Quiz is silently watching students answer questions and depending on their answers is updating a dynamically changing playlist of questions that is unique to each student focussing on knowledge that is not secure. Prioritising questions answered incorrectly, but never completely forgetting those questions that have been previously mastered.
By using the topic filters, students can change the question sets being used by the algorithms. Helpful for mastering just one topic.
Terms allows a student to create three decks of cards labelled, red, amber, green that also correspond to the mastery colours used in Quiz. By using card filters students can choose to look at just the red cards and move cards between decks as they wish. Topic filters also allows a student to narrow the focus of the terms they are revising.
Advance helps students with longer answer questions with command word help and guided marking. Command word help tells the student what the exam board key words are in a question and explains how to approach their answer. Guided marking presents students with a simple set of yes/no questions to guide them through the mark scheme. This can also be switched to unguided to see the complete mark scheme.
An essential part of the revision process is for students to understand how to apply the mark scheme to their answer. Sometimes this is not easy if a student has worded their response differently to how examiners may mark the question. Guided marking in Advance enables the student to reflect for themselves on their answer.
In both Quiz and Terms students can see the last answer they submitted so that they can think about how to improve the answer they are currently writing to the same question.
A personalised revision report shows students how they are progressing together with references to videos and text book pages they would find useful to close the gaps in their knowledge.
