Education assessment consultant Dr Sue Stothard explains what sets GCSEPod’s ‘Check & Challenge’ formative diagnostic assessment system apart…
There are many assessment tools out there to help students practise answering multiple choice questions, but the quality can be highly variable. The GCSEPod Check & Challenge system utilises questions written by subject experts, with incorrect options specifically designed around common mistakes and misconceptions students often display in the course of the exam.
Key to the system I the feedback students receive. When answering a question incorrectly, they will be shown a brief explanation of why they were wrong. We wanted a system that would replicate the type of support a student might receive from a personal coach or home tutor which is why students also receive feedback when they are correct.
We’d love to show you how this feature could work for your students. Please contact us for more information.
