Tom

Director of Mathematics

Used Diagnostic Questions for 12 months

Mar 2019

I really believe in the system and think that it could revolutionise some aspects to teaching but it just needs a few tweaks.

Tom found Diagnostic Questions:
  • Slightly builds student knowledge
    I think that it helps us but we have hit a number of administrative issues which means that our view may be slightly warped. We will however continue with the system as we believe in it but we just need more time to demonstrate its true worth.
  • Does not significantly improve teaching efficiency and productivity
    Yes and no, when it is working and there are no issues but as said previously we have a number of admin barriers which make it difficult. There has been no issue with the support we have had but it just feels like it takes up too much time against what we can get at this current time.
  • Does not significantly reduce teacher workload
    At the moment no, but I think it could. If there was the ability to just hit a button to sync the MIS with DQ that would be amazing. If there was a quick way it could link to Show my homework that would be even better. Also, if more teachers could edit a SOW as we have split classes and as we teach continually rather than splitting topics it makes it difficult to use some features.
  • Does not significantly improve teacher knowledge and skills
    It really will do when my department are dealing with the other issues, there are so many things that this will help with.
  • Slightly saves school money
    It is amazing it is free, and I know it may seem like I have done nothing but complain but we do really believe in it. It is sometimes difficult to get the staff to see the same worth as me due to the issues they have had.

Robin Wallis

Leader for Pupil achievement

Used Diagnostic Questions for 3-4 years

Mar 2019

Love it now that it has the class download file for the scores for every quiz. Would just like it all in one place - still find I'm looking in DQ and the Eedi for different things. More importantly I'd like to be able to print a report easily from the insights page for an individual pupil, with their areas of weakness and the questions they have got wrong. With this I then sit down with the pupils who are struggling.

Robin Wallis found Diagnostic Questions:
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    It is the weekly homework, therefore I'm not forgetting to set HW and I can now easily see who has completed it and where the issues are withing the class.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    See above
  • Moderately improves teacher knowledge and skills
    Shows common misconceptions, which can then be addressed
  • Slightly saves school money
    Well its free, if it wasn't then we wouldn't have a great tool as we can only just afford free!
