Students will begin to lose the knowledge they have been taught gradually over time if they do not revisit topics regularly.
How can you do that when it is difficult enough just to find the time to cover the course?
Forgetting the forgetting curve
Smart Revise presents students with a never-ending, ever-changing cycle of multiple-choice questions.
Smart algorithms calculate which aspects of the course a student needs more practice on and targets these questions to each student. Most importantly, students are regularly challenged on theory they have learned in the past increasing retention of knowledge.
"As a teacher you can see who is engaging, how often, and how successful each student is"
Is multiple-choice effective?
It is surprisingly effective!
Keeping key principles in a students' mind is the goal with Smart Quiz. Little and often low stakes quizzing, and retrieval practice has a remarkable effect of transferring knowledge in working memory and committing it to longer term memory.
Toggle topics on and off, so students are only tested on what they have already learned.
See how much students are engaging and how well they are getting on.
Questions answered correctly will be asked again to make sure students continue to retain knowledge of older topics over time. Questions answered incorrectly will be asked more frequently.
Overview reports allow teachers to see the questions students are struggling with the most and what incorrect answers they are giving.
Share classes so all teachers can track the progress of students easily
A personal tutor
Personalised revision playlist of Craig’n’Dave videos to watch!
When a student answers a question incorrectly, Smart Revise presents helpful advice about the correct answer as well as a link directly to a relevant YouTube Video from Craig'n'Dave.
Smart Revise quietly compiles a personalised revision checklist of topics and videos that a student should watch to maximise their learning and success in exams. This changes dynamically as students answer questions.
Students can see their revision priorities in real time
14 awards to attain
Generates incentives and healthy competition in a class.
To encourage students to engage with Smart Revise, students can achieve a set of awards simply by using Smart Quiz. In addition, class leader boards allow them to see how well they are doing compared to their peers.
At Archway School in Gloucestershire, every lesson starts with a low-stakes quiz. In other subjects, teachers plan these in advance and every student works on the same questions. In the Computing department the low stakes quiz is differentiated to each student and the teacher has no planning to do simply by using Smart Revise.
The low-stakes quiz takes 5-10 minutes and is ideal as a starter activity while waiting for other members of the class to arrive.
Students are also set goals to complete a given number of questions for homework which the teacher monitors using the built-in reports.
In subsequent lessons, the teacher uses the reports to discover the top 10 questions that have not been answered correctly and this leads to a targeted recap effectively nipping misconceptions in the bud.
