It has made our lives as teachers much easier to set homework and the students enjoy it. It makes them think as they can't guess the answers!

Reply from Educake:Hey Kim, we're grateful for your feedback. It makes us really happy to know that you're finding Educake really helpful to use.
Kim Poole found Educake:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    As homework is marked by the computer we don't need to mark homework for KS3 and KS4 anymore, which saves time. Initially there is time dealing with supporting pupils to get used to it and following up non-completers but no more than any other homework
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency
    We identify the common questions that students found difficult and design the next lesson 'Do it now' activity to address that gap in their learning
  • Significantly improves attainment
    We insist on pupils retaking until they get 75%. The students who complete their homework and don't rush through it tend to do better on our internal assessments
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
