The Tech Awards

The Teach Company Awards celebrate the very best options out there to support teaching and learning throughout a child’s educational journey from 0-16+.

To win for Check & Challenge is a phenomenal achievement for us.  We wanted to create an assessment system that was independantly accessed by the students but promoted learning not just testing.  It has been called ‘brilliantly diverse and bursting with innovation, a resource that has been thoughtfully developed to have a positive impact in the classroom and beyond’.

How it worked

The expert judges were then asked to assess the finalists, scoring them according to a clear set of criteria, including potential impact on both outcomes and teacher workload, adaptability, and value for money.

What they were looking for

Resources and services aimed at helping teachers check students’ understanding, improve feedback, track progress and drive school improvement

“This highly innovative and effective resource is a worthy winner. The ‘Check and Challenge’ element is attractively designed to engage pupils and incentivises their efforts using the ‘diamond’ reward system. The sample answers are cleverly designed around common misconceptions, which in turn leads to formative feedback that is highly specific and useful. Equally impressive is the diagnostic data produced for teachers, particularly the ‘misconception identified’ summary and suggestions.”
