The Smart Diagnostic Tool

The SDT is an advanced dynamic diagnostic tool for analysing student assessments and creating individualised study plans, based specifically around each student’s current learning requirements for their GCSE maths revision.

In simple terms the SMART Diagnostic Tool™ is an individual study plan builder based on the student’s strengths and weaknesses.

Creating a personalised study plan is as simple as answering questions; the questions are weighted, so they start with the easy questions and progressively get more difficult.

The questions cover all topics aligned to your GCSE maths revision requirement. Once the questions have been answered, our SDT analyses what your child knows and what your child needs to revise.

At the end of your GCSE maths revision course there is an 'End of Course' Assessment – very much like the questions used initially for creating the study plan. This is a great way to reassess what your child has learnt throughout their study plan as well as identify any areas or topics that may still require further revision.

This process can be repeated an unlimited number of times.

Targeted lessons

Your child has access to the complete 'GCSE Maths Revision PowerPack™ ' library for your chosen revision course. This includes both revision and extension work. Each lesson is supported by ‘practice exercises’, ‘video tutorials’, and ‘examinations’.

Each lesson within the study plan follows our learning methodology which consists of: Step 1 – Practice Lesson, Step 2 – Video Tutorial and Step 3 – Lesson Examination. This provides a fail-safe learning approach and ensures your child benefits fully from the automated learning system for their GCSE maths revision.

Step 1 – Practice

This module or unit of questions is made available simply to expose your child to the new lesson and the type of questions they will be required to attempt. It is also a great way to assess how much your children know about a lesson they may not have been taught yet. During Practice, children get a second attempt at each question if they need to.

The video tutorial can be viewed during any question throughout the 'practice' if your child is having difficulty or does not understand the series of questions being asked. Once the tutorial has been viewed, the child is returned to the same question they were doing.

If a child excels during the Practice stage and achieves a high percentage result, the system will advise you to attempt the 'examination' step without the need to view the video tutorial, this can speed up the learning process if the student so requires.

It works the other way too, if the result for the 'practice' is lower than the child’s set controlling percentage the system will advise the student to review the video tutorial to learn about the topic being attempted.

Step 2 – Video Tutorial

The video tutorial is the one-on-one teaching moment of the lesson. These supporting videos presented by qualified and experienced teachers allow your child to watch and learn about the current topic they are attempting.

Your child has total control over the video tutorial, they can replay or skip to any section as many times as they need to understand the process for the current lesson.

The video tutorials explain in very easy terms what the topic is, how and where it is used, as well as how to use the required techniques and processes to answer the topic questions.

Simple 'play', 'stop', 'pause' controls and 'skip forward/back' controls allow your child to learn at their own pace.

There is no time limit or restriction placed on your child and no peer pressure, they have control of the lesson and the teacher.

Step 3 – Examination

The Examination step is the final step in each lesson. During the exam your child only gets a single attempt at the questions being asked, very much like an examination situation held at school.

The Examination step is the assessment step in the learning process, where your child gets to test themselves on what they have learnt during the lesson topic.

The system will give your child advice based on their results. If they passed the exam by bettering their Mastery Score, they will be congratulated and then directed to move onto the next lesson.

If the score is less than the Mastery Score, the system will encourage your child to review the video tutorial or reattempt the exam. The Mastery Score has been set to 90%, to ensure that full understanding and knowledge has been achieved, providing a solid foundation for their GCSE examination.

The result of each exam is recorded and presented for easy viewing within the Reports feature. Examinations can be retried as many times as the child wishes, this only reinforces what they know and our system encourages each child to achieve the best score they can.

Formative assessment

The formative assessment is a final examination mapped to a specific course. It contains a series of questions that are generated to thoroughly assess a student’s retention and understanding of the course materials. A detailed report assists in identifying individual student weaknesses.

The student completes the assessment and from the results, our SMART Diagnostic Tool™ identifies exactly what the student does and does not know, then creates a personalised study plan tailored to each student’s specific learning needs.

Monitoring & reporting

Having the ability to monitor your children’s progress with their GCSE maths revision is important, because it ensures you have access to the most up-to-date statistical data, keeping you in touch with their current GCSE maths revision progress and performance.

With our system you are able to track the progress and monitor the outcomes of your child’s learning. Our system identifies all subject matter that requires revision and allows you to view all results from each lesson in detail with well laid out and easy to read reports.

Being available online means you can access this information from the home, office or any computer with internet access at any time.

Study plan reporting

The Personal Study plan report shows all the lessons that the SMART Diagnostic Tool™ has identified as needing revision within your child’s course year.

The Study Plan displays the amount of lessons understood, lessons to do and the date of the assessment.

Topic – name

Title – the lesson name description.

Attempted Date – the date the lesson was accessed.

Lesson Status

The Lesson Status shows:

- Not attempted – indicates the student has not accessed this lesson.
- Browsed – indicates the student has accessed the video tutorial or practice lesson.
- Incomplete – indicates the student has attempted the lesson examination and exited the exam prior to completion.
- Passed – indicates the student has completed the exam and achieved the mastery score associated to the student.
- Below Mastery – indicates the student has completed the lesson exam and didn’t achieve the student mastery score.

Personalised study plan

It is vital that your child creates their study plan as their first lesson. This can greatly speed up their GCSE maths revision process. Maximising revision time means your child is working smarter, not harder.

A personalised study plan is created when a student completes a course assessment. From the results, a tailored list of lessons is provided that has been identified as needing revision.

The study plan will only consist of lessons where your child showed a weakness or lower understanding of the lesson materials. Alternatively, no topics will be included in the study plan if your child has shown a sound understanding of the topic knowledge.

On completion of each lesson examination, your child will instantly see their results and upon passing the exam, they are automatically moved onto the next lesson in sequence to their study plan course curriculum.

As a parent you’re able to view a detailed report on exactly what subjects your child is required to be studying. All results are continually updated after each lesson and presented in easy to read formats within the reports module.

Video tutorials

The video tutorials explain in very easy terms what the topic is, how and where it is used, and how to use the required techniques and processes to answer the topic questions.

They can be used to learn a completely new topic or simply to refresh knowledge your child has already gained.

Tutorials are composed and presented by qualified and experienced teachers using proven techniques that provide for all skill-levels and ensure a sound consolidation of lesson content.

Your child has total control over the video tutorial. They can replay or skip to any section as many times as they need to understand the process for the current lesson. Simple play/stop/pause controls and skip forward/back controls allow your child to learn at their own pace.

There is no time limit or restriction placed on your child and no pressure, they have control of the lesson and the teacher.

Ask a tutor

Exemplar’s 'ask a tutor' feature offers extra help and assurance in the home by providing qualified support and direction for studying families. Through the 'ask a tutor' messaging system simply ask our tutors any question related to the lessons on our program.

Parents and students have direct and unlimited access to our online tutors. Simply send a question through our ‘ask a tutor’ email system and one of our qualified teachers will send you a reply.

Both parents and children are able to use the ‘ask a tutor’ function. Feel free to ask questions about the Exemplar lessons or school related issues.

Baseline reporting

The baseline report is created when a student completes their formative assessment that creates their study plan. The baseline report will measure the outcomes from the student’s initial assessment against the last assessment and final course examination.

**Initial Assessment** – this is the result from the first formative assessment that creates the student’s study plan.

**Last Assessment** – your child is able to redo their course assessment at any stage which will update their study plan. These results measure the differences between the Initial Assessment and the Last Assessment and clearly identify the student’s knowledge performance as a percentage.

**Final exam** – this result measures the performance between the Initial Assessment and the Final Exam and clearly identifies the student’s knowledge performance as a percentage.

Summary reporting

The Summary report gives the statistical data and pie chart information on your child’s GCSE maths revision.

- Last lesson accessed – indicates the last lesson your child has accessed.
- Last accessed date – indicates the last date a lesson was accessed.
- Total number of lessons – this indicates number of lessons within the course.
- Total number of lessons passed – this indicates the number of lessons passed within the course to date.
- Total number of lessons attempted – this indicates the number of lessons attempted, including passed, incomplete and below mastery.
- Total number of incomplete lessons – this indicates the number of lesson exams the student has exited prior to completion.
- Total number of lessons with below mastery – this indicates the number of lesson exams that were below the set lesson pass mark for the student.
- Average mark per lesson achieved – this indicates the average score against all passed and below mastery lesson exams.
- Total certificates lessons achieved – with each lesson exam the student can gain a GOLD, SILVER or BRONZE award which works towards a certificate.
