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.

Head of Science

St Columbanus' College, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Used Educake daily for 1-2 years

Aug 2022

Educake does what you say it does. Even though it is not yet properly aligned to the Northern Ireland curriculum, it is an extremely useful tool for a good majority of the year for most classes.

Michael Linden found Educake:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Data collection on student engagement. Making tests targeted for current learning. In order to make good use of Educake, work input is necessary.... an extra effort on top of traditional assessment, but it is well worth it.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    Homework is planned well and scheduled. Feedback is very easy to provide.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Statistical analysis of student engagement shows a direct correlation between questions answered and performance in internal and external exams. This indicates that students who repeat quizzes multiple times learn key facts.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Key terminology and facts are built through repetition, when students make notes based on what they learn through information in questions and answers.

It is really easy access and effective, but has its own issues. For example does not provide content for students to study and some students don't like it. Plus there are still some free similar programs.

Mariam Razavi found Educake:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    You don't have to mark students work
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency
    Some spelling or similar answers are not given mark so have to deal with it.
  • Moderately improves attainment
    Works better with lower ability students as they need to repeat questions and also require to practice short answer questions.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Short-basic knowledge

Some of the spelling mistakes that it doesn't allow are a bit ridiculous e.g. adding an s sometimes gets a wrong score

Sarah found Educake:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    The fact that it gets mainly marked and the students get instant feedback on their score
  • Slightly improves teaching efficiency
    We use it more for assessments
  • Slightly improves attainment
    not sure, but it is giving the students more accountability, so inturn should improve attainment

Teacher of Science (Flexi School)

Cheney School, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Used Educake daily for 7–12 months

Aug 2022

For a virtual class, Educake simply has one of the easiest interface for teachers to use, making it easy to gauge student effort and progression. I would say 9/10 because there is certainly the possibility of not having impact if Educake was improperly used. For example students could be demotivated if being given regular quizzes on topics they have not covered in the academic year as part of “spaced repetition” and “retrieval practice”. I understand also that Educake is currently trialling short answer questions as well. It would benefit to have question banks that are more challenging and have lower proportions of simple recall. Overall, extremely useful product for online learning from my perspective as teacher of a virtual science class as well as from my students’ perspectives with whom I have spent time discussing their learning strategies.

Marco Narajos found Educake:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    This is a review with my experiences of using Educake for Flexi School with a virtual/online-only science class for KS4. I used Educake significantly for starter activities, deliberate practice, and plenary activities. It made it easy to see common issues with understanding which allowed me to adjust instruction as part of assessment for learning and formative assessment.
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency
    I can easily see which questions have common misunderstandings in their responses. I can then open up this question and use this as a starter activity for the following lesson - students are online and so they can re-do the quizzes and this helps them to perceive a sense of progression in their learning.
  • Moderately improves attainment
    No hard evidence of impact on attainment but the students who are working virtually value Educake quizzes as part of self-regulatory strategies for learning.
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    Students receive corrective feedback at the end of the quiz, following which students can redo the quiz and attempt a better score.

It is just brilliant! A huge bank of questions where homework of a high quality is easily and quickly set. The auto mark saves teacher time but gives immediate feedback to students, allowing the teacher to focus on analysis rather that the process of marking. Easily accessible to students and no messing around with excuses of ‘I have forgotten my homework’! Allows students to develop their independence by answering their own questions and the study guides at KS4 are a brilliant additional resource for students to revise from.

Reply from Educake:Thank you for leaving us a review, so pleased to hear Educake is benefiting teachers and students!
Emma Rex found Educake:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Using Educake means homework is very quickly set and no teacher time on marking, just analysing.

It can be useful for schools who would benefit from having a greater consistency in their homework policy across teachers of different science subjects

Reply from Educake:Hi Marco, thanks so much for leaving us a review. Raising student attainment is really important to us, so we'd be interested in learning more about the research you've done about Educake's impact on your students. I hope you won't mind if we reach out to you on another forum to see if we can chat in a bit more detail. It sounds like your insight could be really helpful to us!
Marco Narajos found Educake:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Less time needed to check whether students are completing homework with obvious metrics to share with parents
  • Not significantly improves teaching efficiency
    Sometimes there are good sets of questions that allow for learners to undertake deliberate practice
  • Slightly improves attainment
    I have studied the relationship between Educake completion (number of questions completed) and progress made between summative assessments (learners from year 9-11) and there is virtually no association. Where there is an association is first attempt score average on Educake and learners’ overall attainment (GCSE grade), but this relationship disappears if we take into account students’ prior attainment by correcting for it using FFT20
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    Recall questions are perceived by students to be useful for those with low prior attainment

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.
