What’s next for Smart Revise?
Smart Revise is an evolving product that is continually improved and adpated based on user feedback. When we released our new feature, Smart Tasks in September 2021 we knew it wasn’t finished. However, we wanted to get some new functionality to our teachers in time for the start of the academic year. Our short-term plan is now to iterate on these foundations to turn Smart Tasks into the feature that we always imagined. Smart Revise is developed using an agile approach. We anticipate a new feature going live approximately every four to six weeks.
What we are working on now
Features now live
Longer term plans
We have lots of innovative and unique ideas planned for the future. These include a new “mastery mode” for Quiz to enable students to focus on mastering questions, and many more features that we are not ready to talk about yet.
Students are also asking for a dark theme. We hear you!
We will be increasing the number of exam-style questions for Advance and Tasks, particularly algorithm questions that require students to read, trace, refine and write code. The plan is to release free content packs from time to time.
Questions from Paul Long’s Ultimate GCSE resources will be added to Smart Revise in the future too.
Refining existing content
Quiz is intended to address the forgetting curve, so it is important that the number of questions in this feature is appropriate. Too many and students won’t be able to master them. Too few and the course will not be adequately covered. Multiple choice questions can also be used for diagnostic analysis and the plan is to review each Quiz question to ensure it can be used for this purpose too.
