Used Learning By Questions daily for 3-4 years

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.
