What is Educake?

Educake is an award-winning online assessment and revision platform for science, English, geography, history, maths and computer science.

Educake can help you do more teaching, by saving you time on setting homework, marking and analysing results: specification-matched tests can be set in seconds. You get immediate insights into strengths and weaknesses, and students get instant feedback.

Educake uses the principles of retrieval practice to help students recall, revise and retain past learning more effectively. Students are supported outside of the classroom with personalised tests and integrated study guides to support independent learning and revision.

Recommended Usage

Using Educake several times a week helps to check understanding of new topics. Setting revision of past topics enables students to actively demonstrate what they know and build stronger recall in a low-pressure environment.

Educake is a fantastic platform for students to apply their knowledge and understanding. By doing quizzes, they can increase their confidence in key ideas and gain feedback instantly. Students being able to view study guides and set themselves quizzes adds to the benefits. The variety of questions and easy to use platform significantly reduce teacher workload for homework. Being able to view data for your class allows you to adapt your lessons to include key ideas students struggle with. You can also easily view your mark sheet meaning you do not need to keep a separate spreadsheet of who has completed homework and who hasn't. The new app and teacher platform updates mean that more students can access the quizzes and that staff can keep their screens tidy, allowing easy access to previously set quizzes.

Emma Robertson found Educake:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Easy to see which questions students got wrong and tailor re-teaching of key ideas to this.
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency
    Educake can be used to set practice questions and as retrieval activities ensuring the students see many examples of questions to check their knowledge and understanding.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Students who engage with Educake tend to do better. Lots of practice helps the key ideas stick in students memories.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    By revealing the correct answers students get immediate feedback allowing them to learn from quizzes.

It is costly - our own school struggles for this budget and I am not sure I'll be able to renew next year even though I'd love to. There are a few additional features I would recommend that I think would be (fairly) easy enough to build into the website that would give additional avenues.

Reply from Educake:Thanks for your feedback - definitely interested in hearing about additional features you would like to see. You can contact us at any time at support@educake.co.uk
Will found Educake:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Marking of homework is simplified. During 'blended learning' (online) it was a good means to set work and give feedback.
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency
    Streamlines homework setting - enables marks of homework to be collated. It is also an "easy" focus to provide for students for additional work / revision etc.
  • Slightly improves attainment
    I am still looking at the evidence for this.
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    Students may come to a lesson and say "Ahh this was on Educake the other night". They also build on learning undertaken in the lesson.

    Feedback discussions with students and it also allows us to target weak / weaker topics for further T&L
  • Significantly improves attainment
    I think it has / is having a very important impact on attainment: but we have only been using for few months so I will be judging this at a later date.

Dec 2021

The homework is good. We have had some less than cordial discussions with members of Educake who occasionally have come across as rude when we want your help (especially as when we're paying). We also find that not being able to link usernames to school emails (e.g. such as Google) extremely difficult as it means an extra username and password that pupils 'forget'. We do think it has some big benefits. We are setting regular homework that accurately tells pupils how they are doing and able to use this knowledge in future lessons. We would just like a bit more flexibility in how it is applied for our school, without being made to feel like it is our fault.

Reply from Educake:Thanks for your feedback. We're working right now to make Educake available using Google single sign-on, which should hopefully make student logins much simpler. We'll make sure to let you know when it's ready, most likely early in the new year.
Chris Parry found Educake:
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
    Saves time on setting homework and helps support their knowledge and improvements
  • Not significantly improves teaching efficiency
    None, as we don't use much in lessons, mainly for homework
  • Moderately improves attainment
    Pupils in top sets in particular are improving weekly on each test, especially with repeat questions
  • Moderately builds student knowledge

I have used Educake so often that it has become an integral part of my teaching and my students learning. I have and will always recommend it to other colleagues both in and away from my place of work.

Working out the strengths and weaknesses of the students from the quiz is so simple and then you can use this to inform the next steps of revision/teaching.
