I was recently invited to take a look at Education Quizzes’ huge range of revision quizzes which span all age ranges and subjects. I also invited my husband to browse the quizzes with me; between us we have nearly thirty years teaching experience in fifteen separate subjects – so we have a fair idea about the curricula across the subject range.
My first stop, being an English teacher and English Literature graduate, was the GCSE English Literature Quizzes. English is a difficult subject to cater for in quiz format, as usually answers need to be quite long and deal with several objectives at once. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the nature of the quizzes – there were larger texts to read and although the majority of the tests were multiple choice, they still enable students to check they have absorbed key skills.
I am pleased to say that I got all the questions right! As an English teacher of thirteen years it would have been very embarrassing if I hadn’t.
My husband tried out several sections, including Citizenship, Music and Geography, as they are all subjects he has taught. He found the quizzes all used information that was relevant to the curriculum and it was easy to find topics and get started. There are so many subjects to try – from KS1 Art and Computing to GSCE Biology.
One of the great things I found about Education Quizzes was how diverse their material is; if you have several children of all different age ranges, studying many different subjects, a subscription to Education Quizzes could be really invaluable.
Education Quizzes have also recently released a Schools’ Subscription package. With this package, parents and teachers can work together and students can access the quizzes – both for use in lessons and at home with their parents. The more students a school signs up with, the cheaper the subscription – meaning parents and teachers alike could benefit from this resource from as little as £2 a month per child.
As a former teacher, I could definitely see how Education Quizzes could benefit a teacher in the classroom. It would be particularly useful for setting homework that is automatically marked (a great time-saver if used in moderation!) and for easy and consistent cover lessons.
Overall Education Quizzes could be a really useful resource for parents and teachers alike. You can sign up and subscribe as an individual for Education Quizzes here.
Alternatively, if you are an educational establishment or you would like to share this info with your child’s school, information on Education Quizzes Schools’ Packages can be found here.
