    • teaching & learning
    • formative assessment & revision
    • summative assessment to support exam style questions and develop exam technique with model answers and commentary
  • Sold as an annual subscription from £90 per subject

Kerboodle Secondary

  • Online resources follow the layout of the student books, so students can easily revisit and re-use the same activities that were taught in class
  • Students find the resources easy to use and the interactive activities are automatically marked - helping them to practise and improve
  • Courses contain a wide range of assessment activities linked to the key skills needed for exam success. Examiners comments can also help students see where they can improve their exam answers. Online research activities guide students in key research, planning and analytical skills
  • Online tests can assess knowledge and progression. Kerboodle ‘marks them’ so teachers just need to review results
  • Needs of the individual student can be targeted and they can be assigned support or extension work – ‘personalised learning’
  • Students' individual test and assignment reports can be tracked to see how they are progressing as well as used for comparison across the class/year
  • Kerboodle may be used as a front of class teaching resource on an interactive white board
  • Each course can be tailored to suit the way teachers teach - own resources can be added, folders renamed and items or units may be ‘hidden’ from students
