Having worked in Mainstream Secondary schools for over 20 years, I personally know how hard it is to keep children focussed and enjoying their work, especially when it is close to exam times or test times. In the age of Modern Technology they just want to be on computers, laptops, and tablets to work.
Education Quizzes could be the perfect place for children to consolidate knowledge they have started to build at school. It is a super website that makes subjects fun, interesting and breaks down the most complex things into easier to understand bitesize pieces.
This great site helps to put in the foundation bricks and then builds on the Theory of Learning.
Questions are presented in a clear way with a choice of answers listed underneath. Once you have worked out your answer then you click on what you think is the correct one.
If your answer is correct you receive a green tick. It also gives you an explanation of the answer which again will consolidate your knowledge of this subject.
If you are incorrect with an answer to a question it will let you know, inform you of the correct one and again explain how the right solution was worked out.
Each quiz is 10 questions long so easy for a child to keep focussed on one subject at a time. At the end of each quiz you are given a score out of 10.
As you can see this can then be printed out to be placed into a folder as reference or into workbooks at school. The score is also recorded on the sub category listing as a point of reference for the child, the parent or the teacher. This can show growth in learning as scores improve. The quizzes can all be taken more than once. As shown below, I visited the Perimeter section on 13th May and scored 6 out of 10.
You can get a report of the work and scores you have achieved.
So since I have only been on for today I clicked today. This is the report I received. I participated in 3 quizzes.
What a great reference for a child, a teacher and a parent. By getting higher scores and gathering knowledge, it will empower a child to build on their self esteem and confidence too.
I had a look at other subjects and found the webpage so easy to understand and navigate,
At £9.95 per month, Education Quizzes understand that it may be out of reach for some people, although a brilliant resource to be able to use as a family. However, they are extremely conscious of this fact.
The company would like people to promote this idea to their child’s school. The school can then pay for the webpage on behalf of its children and they would then benefit from greatly reduced costs. Depending on the number of students at a school, it is possible for them to sign-up students for as little as £2.00 per year. This could lead to a greater engagement of parents with the school and could also win the school some brownie-points when it comes to the next Ofsted inspection!
I loved the quizzes. I loved the fact that a chld could do them on their own or with friends. Not only could it be a task for discussion but also one for creating team work and social skills.
But most of all it helps children to be successful at school.
