Track progress

Smart Revise has a wealth of reports and features that can be used by students and teachers to track progress with big data that is captured automatically.

For students the mastery bar in Quiz, the confidence indicators in Terms, a personal revision report, analytic reports, and their own mark book for Tasks, plus Awards and leaderboards.

For teachers a larger range of analytic reports for each of the revision features and a mark book for Tasks.

How Smart Revise can be used to track progress







A teacher can:

  • Access a wealth of reports:
  • Quiz usage: how often students are engaging with Quiz.
  • Quiz student overview: the accuracy and mastery of Quiz for all students.
  • Quiz questions analysis: the top ten least understood and most understood questions.
  • Quiz class matrix: full breakdown of mastery and accuracy by topic.
  • Terms usage: how often students are engaging with Terms.
  • Terms student overview: the overall confidence RAG rating by student and course confidence percentage.
  • Terms analysis: the top ten least understood and most understood terms.
  • Terms student responses: the definitions written by each student and their confidence indicator.
  • Advance usage: how often students are engaging with Advance.
  • Advance student overview: the distribution of marks for questions.
  • Advance student responses: answers students have given to exam-style questions with mark scheme breakdown. Identify the aspects of the mark scheme students are not using.

All reports can be downloaded in CSV format for further analysis in a spreadsheet.

  • Record marks from Tasks automatically in a mark book.

The research

As a part of data-driven instruction, student progress tracking enables teachers to capture learning data and evaluate academic progress toward school goals for individuals, groups, and the entire class. Everything from a daily quiz to end-of-year summative assessments can be used to monitor student success, providing valuable insights into the efficacy of assignments, lesson plans, teaching methods, and even the curriculum as a whole.

Put simply, data-driven instruction is when educators collect and analse big data on student learning to drive classroom instruction. While the phrase “big data” might sound scary, all it really alludes to is the scale and scope of the data you collect. Whereas traditional student data tracked macro-scale progress through summative assessments and standardised testing, big data incorporates daily classroom and assessment information for a detailed view of student performance.

Data-driven instruction is a continuous process in which educators gather student information, perform data analysis to identify weak spots, and make the necessary adjustments

Today’s student data platforms empower teachers to provide data-driven instruction that maximizes student outcomes. With data-driven instruction, teachers gain a better understanding of learner progress and potential intervention methods. This allows them to optimise their instructional practice to improve individual student learning outcomes.

According to the National Center on Student Progress Monitoring, over 200 empirical studies have shown the validity of Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) in assessing student achievement. CBM, now known as student progress tracking, has become a reliable way to evaluate progress data in all classrooms.

Interest, curiosity and a desire to make sense of what a student was being tested on helps retention of knowledge during the learning process.

To be successful a pre-test needs to be low-stakes. A simple RAG rating against subject specific terminology in a topic enables students to know what they are going to learn while providing formative assessment data for the teacher. Teachers can ensure they spend more time on the areas of the topic that are least understood.

A student can:

  • Access their personalised revision report:

  • Collect awards for using Smart Revise.
  • See their position on a class leader board if the teacher has enabled it.
