Working with Doddle and the Progress Test Series®

Doddle provides over 21,000 high quality teaching and learning resources, including presentations, animations, revision activities and self-marking quizzes that reduce the workload in planning lessons and marking. Through Doddle, teachers can quickly assign differentiated work for students to address any gaps in learning or for those who are ready to be stretched.

The Progress Test Series® of assessments in English, maths and science provide an annual analysis of key dimensions of learning for each subject and a question-by-question breakdown indicates where individuals or groups have gaps in understanding. This information can be used to support the needs of individual students and to identify areas of the curriculum where teaching needs reinforcing.

The mapping document for each level of the Progress Test Series links each question to the available resources on Doddle, helping teachers to quickly identify the most appropriate tools to support their students. Engaging resources will help to consolidate learning and self-marking homework shows what work students have completed, what they scored and how they rate their confidence on the subject.

Put it into action

Step 1: Generate reports for the most recent Progress Test in Maths

Step 2: Use the Question Level Analysis to identify which questions the class, group (Group Report for Teachers) or student (Individual Student Report for Teachers) have answered incorrectly.

Step 3: Use the Mapping Document to quickly find the Doddle mathematics activities that cover the areas identified in the Question Level Analysis.

Step 4: Choose and assign the activities to your students and use the self-marking quizzes to check that learning has taken place.

Question AU2: Prime numbers

Question AU13b: Translation

Question AU16a: Co-ordinates

Question AU20a: Angles around a point

Question AU29: Circumference of a circle

Question AU31: Sample spaces for combined events

Step 5: Once the areas for development have been addressed, assign Doddle activities for the rest of the year.

Step 6: Towards the end of the year, assess all students with the Progress Test in Maths and repeat the cycle.
