NEW! English, Maths and Science Assessments

Today is an exciting day for us here at EdPlace. We’ve reached an important milestone on our quest to help improve each child’s grades, and we have some exciting news to share with you all.

As a team, we’re always looking for ways to improve our service and ensure your child is well on their way to achieving their full potential, so naturally we’re pretty excited about this new addition!

We’re delighted to announce that our new assessments for English, Maths and Science are now live!

Our new assessments are progress checkers, not tests, that give you increased visibility of your child’s progress within their current year or key stage. We’ll be using these as checkpoints to help identify areas where your child may need more support, effectively guiding them on a personalised learning journey.

Thanks to this new feature, we’ll have a better understanding of the topics your child should focus on. Oh, and if you’re using our auto-assign feature, we’ll automatically assign worksheets based on their scores. Check out the example below for more details on how this works.

The above example shows an assessment results page for a Year 6 English student. Overall, they’ve done incredibly well, however we know that with a little extra help and focus, they can do even better.

As you can see, the score is broken down by topic. For this student we would assign worksheets in Writing, Vocabulary and Word Meaning to help increase their understanding of these topics.

We’re incredibly excited about this new feature, and we hope that both you and your child enjoy using it on your EdPlace Journey – our mission is to help your child succeed!

All the best,

The EdPlace Team

Addressing the urgent need for affordable tuition

* Article written by Will Paterson – Founder & CEO, EdPlace *

The Sutton Trust recently published its report on private tuition and social mobility in the UK. It’s by far the most comprehensive and insightful report of its kind and highlights a critical social equality issue: private tuition use is increasing the attainment gap (the achievement gap between higher and lower incomes) because only those with means can afford it.
