What is Learning By Questions?

Learning By Questions (LbQ) is a classroom app filled with curriculum-aligned Question Sets and immediate feedback to super-charge learning.

Reduce your workload with automatic marking and instant insight for effective interventions. Learning By Questions covers all abilities so you can differentiate and support your students your way.

With LbQ, you can drill a particular rule with a practice set, conquer a complicated theorem with a mastery set, or even craft your own bespoke Question Set for a particularly tricky subject.

Real-time lesson analysis gives teachers the information needed to intervene, teach and plan ahead without marking.

LbQ covers KS2 and KS3 maths mastery, English and science.

TrainingIn PersonLive OnlineWebinarsDocumentationVideos

Getting started with LbQ is a relaxed session, held every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, where we walk you through the platform and show you how to run a Question Set with your class. Feel free to ask questions - that's what we're all about.

If you have been running LbQ in your classroom, saving yourself valuable time and seeing your pupils rocket, then you might want to step things up with our 'Beyond the Basics' course.

These sessions are held every other Monday and involve tailoring LbQ to your class and advanced interventions (not as scary as it sounds!). This is an informal session where we hope you will join in and have a chat with us. 'Beyond the Basics' also acts as a clinic, so if you have any questions then please book on and we'll give you all the assistance you need.

STEM Lead and Y3 Teacher

Lanchester EP Primary, England

Used Learning By Questions weekly for 3-4 years

Feb 2022

Such a great resource to use. Thousands of question sets at the click of a button that our children from Y1-Y6 love using.

Mark Stephenson found Learning By Questions:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Question sets are so easy to locate and use with links direct to schemes such as White Rose. It takes minutes to search and review question sets before allocating to classes.
  • Moderately reduces attainment gap
    Higher achievers thrive at the extension parts of the question sets. Children are able to work independently on tasks without any peer pressures. The live results enable quick interventions where needed. Using LBQ as intervention and top up sessions is also an excellent use of the resource.
  • Significantly provides school data
    Tracked classes allows for speedy access to data. Whole class tracking as well as individual results are easily accessible. Data then used alongside school data systems.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    As the children access LBQ question sets at their own pace, their confidence and performance have improved. There is less peer pressure. Children are independent learners. With clear help and guidance if they get something wrong, it removes the stigma of feeling different in front of others.
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    Great to reinforce what is being taught. Also great to be able to extend using further reasoning and problem solving.

Teacher/ Maths Coordinator

Peel Park Primary School, England

Feb 2022

The use of Learning by Questions has changed my teaching, changed the attitude towards learning of my pupils, has significantly helped to reduce the time I spend as a teacher planning and marking and most importantly has had a positive impact on the attainment of all the pupils that use it.

John Coombs found Learning By Questions:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Planning and marking time is significantly reduced due to Learning by Questions.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    Pupils are able to work through questions that strategically challenge their understanding. They are able to receive instant feedback if they do get a question wrong, this has such a huge positive impact of their confidence and understanding as they progress through any given question set.
  • Moderately provides school data
    Although it isn't used as an assessment tool is does offer instant, clear analysis of pupils understanding. This can really help with teacher assessments and enables a teacher to add extra intervention of those pupils who need it.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    I have a number of pupils that have made accelerated progress in Maths already this year. They came into the year working currently below age related expectations and have grown in confidence and understanding leading to them now being assessed as at age related expectations. Regular use of LbQ has without doubt positively impacted on this.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    The structured nature of the question sets activate and builds on prior understanding before moving on to more challenging questions that deepen the pupil's understanding on a particular element of Maths.

I feel that LbQ is the way to support learning in real time, where children can be motivated and challenged and supported individually and independently, in a busy classroom, without anyone being left behind.

Jason Hudson found Learning By Questions:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Assessment/Planning/Resourcing are all a breeze when using the Tracked Class features
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    Using practise question sets to support children with lower levels of fluency as well as the ability to to identify and deal with misconceptions as they arise in real time impacts greatly on attainment.
  • Moderately provides school data
    Moderation of pupil progress and attainment is greatly supported by the rich information collected for each child.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    The ability to select an modify tasks to support or stretch learning ensures that chidden are able to attain well.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Ability to rehearse and repeat tasks or use unit reviews or make own question review sets support children's metacognition.

Superb learning platform that shows progress in real-time. Removes the old-fashioned approach of marking books and giving feedback well after the event - often the following day - when misconceptions have had time to become concrete. This system nips those misconceptions in the bud before they take root. We've started to use it as a same day intervention and it was excellent as a remote learning resource during lock-down. This is the next step in the evolution of teaching!

Mark Harding found Learning By Questions:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Self marking and identifying misconceptions efficiently.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    LbQ can be used to address gaps and be used as same day intervention.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Challenging question sets designed to build on previous learning.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Wide range of question sets that pinpoint key learning.

Excellent resources to help me teach and to promote good progress for students. Its reduced my workload massively and improved the variability of the work given to students. Not only would I recommend LBQ I have already done so to every member of staff who will listen.

Mark Daniels found Learning By Questions:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Planning and printing of worksheets now a thing of the past. Extension work already and thus less needed. Easy to find and quick to access in lesson.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    Students can see their progress and they can give themselves targets for learning. The program is also allowing them to see that others are wrong too and thus manage their expectations better.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Students reaching higher levels on topic assessments and more willing to attempt harder questions. This is providing better outcomes.
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    Enables students to see why they are wrong and helps them improve. While LBQ does not teach students it does allow me to have many excellent learning conversations.

Feb 2022

LbQ is amazing. As a maths teacher of twenty years I have to say it is the best innovation I have encountered. The positive impact on my classroom practice is huge. I can immediatley pinpoint areas for development, engage all pupils and have fun with it! Highly, highly recommended.

Edel Murphy found Learning By Questions:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Learning by Questions marks the pupils work instantly, freeing the teacher up to target and correct mistakes and misconceptions immediately. The teacher can immediately see common problem areas and can pause the task to work with the whole class. Work can be easily differentiated by setting appropriate tasks to different groups.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    Pupils are able to see immediately if they are getting a question wrong and can try a different method. The teacher can see if they are struggling with a concept as they are working rather than finding out later on when marking their book. Learning by Questions encourages pupils to work together to come to a solution. It also encourages all pupils to 'have a go' which is essential in Maths. Pupils are less worried about making a mistake as they know they can try again. We have found that the impact of this is that pupils are making more progress than previously and that this success is encouraging them to keep striving for more!
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Using LbQ helps the teacher immediately identify areas of weakness or misconceptions so these can be dealt with quickly. The pupils can quickly see that often the issue is that they are misinterpreting the question and that their understanding of the 'maths' is fine. Using LbQ has injected a 'buzz' into our maths classrooms and our GCSE results have improved significantly since using LbQ.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    We use LbQ to directly target individual pupils' areas for improvement. Using data from standardised testing we can easily work on developing highlighted areas through the LbQ platform. In class, one of the advantages of LbQ is that the questions assess pupils' understanding, fluency, reasoning and problem solving in order. Often reluctant pupils can be motivated by the fact that their understanding and fluency with a concept is sound and that they just need more cnfidence with the problem solving type questions.
