We recommend your students take this assessment both before the 6-week trial and after they have used the platform for 6 weeks to measure their progress.
We have created standardised assessments for GCSE Maths for the 6 week pilots. For Maths, this takes the form of one assessment paper. Your students should take this before the 6-week trial and then the same paper after, to measure their progress.
For English, our educators recommend setting students your choice of your exam board’s past Component 1 papers, selecting two different year’s papers for the pre- and post-pilot assessment.
These papers can be found on your exam board’s website directly.
Your students will take these assessments on paper before moving onto the SchoolOnline platform to to start their learning.
Maths Pre and Post Pilot Assessment (same test)
For Your Pilot
The 6 weeks of study during the pilot will be based on the “6 Weeks to a Grade 4” course, available in the Courses section of the platform.
You will be setting each week’s course content as an “assignment” so you can track your students’ work and their results. We will prepare these lists for you so they are all ready to be set as assignments (and can help with setting the assignments as well!).
To support you in creating and marking assignments on SchoolOnline Classroom we have also attached two tutorial videos, walking you through how to set your assignments. If you would like any more support using the platform you can head over to our tutorial videos by clicking here or contact our live helpdesk through the green bubble in the bottom right hand corner.
