Education Quizzes – Rapid Revision for School Subjects
April 20, 2022
The UK’s largest and most comprehensive range of National Curriculum based interactive quizzes.
Every quiz is designed for students and created by teachers. Over 3,000 quizzes (that’s more than 30,000 questions!) covering 90% of the National Curriculum.
Developed specifically for children from Key Stage 1 through to GCSE (including 11-Plus).
Why Play Quizzes?
Quizzes are interactive and fun to play. They are based on a scientifically proven method of learning called Active Recall. Active Recall embeds knowledge in the long-term memory more effectively than passive learning.
“Students benefit greatly from being able to take online practice quizzes. These quizzes focus on the critical lower-level thinking learning for the students. The students can practise these activities on online quizzes, therefore, freeing up class time for higher-level thinking activities.”
Harry G. Tuttle writing in Education with Technology
What is Active Recall?
Active Recall is the grandiose name that academics give to a relatively simple concept that all of us understand but most of us don’t know its name. It is probably the most valuable educational tool for every student preparing for tests and exams.
The best way of explaining it is with an example.
You are introduced to someone for the first time, you’re told their name but then you don’t see them again for a year. It’s almost certain that you won’t remember their name when you next meet.
Contrast that with someone you are introduced to and then speak to a few times during the next year. It’s almost certain you WILL remember their name. Each time you speak to the person, your brain is forced to use Active Recall to retrieve their name. The more often you retrieve their name the more firmly it becomes embedded in your long-term memory.
In the world of education, Active Recall is probably the most valuable of all techniques for embedding knowledge in long-term memory ready for instant retrieval in the exam room. With increasing emphasis being put on examination success (in place of long-term course work) this is an important consideration in the lives of students.
