What is Educake?

Educake is an award-winning online assessment and revision platform for science, English, geography, history, computer science, PE, business and maths. Educake is now available for Primary KS2 English, maths and science.

Educake can help you do more teaching, by saving you time on setting homework, marking and analysing results: specification-matched tests can be set in seconds. You get immediate insights into strengths and weaknesses, and students get instant feedback.

Educake uses the principles of retrieval practice to help students recall, revise and retain past learning more effectively. Students can set themselves quizzes in Educake, and they’ll get the same immediate feedback that they get on their Educake homework and classwork.

For primary, Educake offers complete preparation for English SATs at upper KS2. It includes SPaG and reading practice. Educake has recently added audio questions to enhance deeper learning of pupils. Clear reporting of areas that need to be revisited makes Educake a really useful aid for primary teachers.

Educake helps students identify their strengths and weaknesses, so they can focus on the topics that need more work. If they want some guidance, Educake’s algorithm creates topic suggestions and revision quizzes tailored to students’ needs.

Recommended Usage

Using Educake several times a week helps to check understanding of new topics. Setting revision of past topics enables students to actively demonstrate what they know and build stronger recall in a low-pressure environment.

Because it does not link to our MIS automatically. As a school that has a lot of student movement it’s really annoying to add new pupils every week and add them to link via SSO. Every other platform we use syncs with wonde or group call.

Reply from Educake:Hi Claire, Thank you for taking the time to review Educake – we really appreciate all customer feedback! Good news - we’re exploring MIS integration now. Would Raynes Park like to take part in our testing phase, and get early access to the integration? Let us know - support@educake.co.uk

I have already been promoting Educake to colleagues without being asked! It has reduced workload around homework and cover massively, and allows students to push themselves, developing independent learners.

Reply from Educake:Hi Adam, thank you for your lovely review! We're delighted to hear that your students are repeating quizzes to improve and really engaging with it independently.
Adam Anderson found Educake:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    It is ideal when setting unforeseen cover and, of course, reduces the homework burden massively.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    Its instant feedback on student engagement and attainment makes rewarding, encouraging, and sanctioning so much more speedy.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Students can challenge themselves to redo quizzes where they feel that have underachieved, and this does really happen! The Revision Wizard is another fabulous tool for encouraging independent learners, and the accessibility of the programme means that the uptake in homework is really boosted.

    Revision Wizard - ace.

Educake has engaged students with their homework, empowered them to take control of their own revision; massively reduced teacher workload, whilst providing more personalised feedback to students and classes; the markbook is incredibly useful, as are the individualised reports which are great for parents' evenings and end of term report writing

Reply from Educake:Hi David, thank you for your fabulous review! We're so glad Educake is already making a difference to your workload and your students' recall.
David Hopkin found Educake:

A fantastic resource that saves a large amount of teacher time, and also improves student experience - something that would not be possible without it.

Reply from Educake:Hi Luke, thanks for leaving us such a wonderful review. At Educake, we work towards helping teachers teach and learners learn.
Luke found Educake:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    The setting of weekly quizzes to students for homework which is auto-marked and provides instant feedback means that teachers' marking workload is reduced and students get a more effective learning experience.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    With detailed analysis, including comparisons to national data, it is easy to identify areas that need revisiting with individuals and whole classes.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    It provides regular retrieval practice opportunities for students, allowing them to retain more information in their long term memory. This is invaluable when answering examination questions.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Constant retrieval practice embeds key knowledge in long term memory, and it is easy for students to choose bespoke quizzes based on their prior responses.

It has made our lives as teachers much easier to set homework and the students enjoy it. It makes them think as they can't guess the answers!

Reply from Educake:Hey Kim, we're grateful for your feedback. It makes us really happy to know that you're finding Educake really helpful to use.
Kim Poole found Educake:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    As homework is marked by the computer we don't need to mark homework for KS3 and KS4 anymore, which saves time. Initially there is time dealing with supporting pupils to get used to it and following up non-completers but no more than any other homework
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency
    We identify the common questions that students found difficult and design the next lesson 'Do it now' activity to address that gap in their learning
  • Significantly improves attainment
    We insist on pupils retaking until they get 75%. The students who complete their homework and don't rush through it tend to do better on our internal assessments

Excellent product for homework and revision which significantly reduces workload. However analytics is a little lacking compered to some other products.

Reply from Educake:Hi Ian, thanks for your feedback. We’re glad we could reduce your workload and help you in homework and revision. We’ve been working on a tool for analysis which would give you better insights into student progress as well as the overall class performance when compared nationally. It should be ready in a few weeks. If you’d like to test it - please get in touch.

Just feel it can be a bit outdated needs wider aspects for KS3 also key vocabulary like spelling tests etc would be welcomed to support SPAG and bridge the literacy gap as well it might be useful to have watch a video and answer questions

Reply from Educake:Hey Karen, thanks for your feedback. We're reviewing our geography provision to see where we can add more content, so feedback like this is really helpful.
Karen fiddler found Educake:
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
    It can be timely due to having to find the right questions to match SOL particularly for ks3 a lot of the questions are irrelevant as I use progress in geography hodder and find some of the questions are outdated using older terms against the spec such which can confuse our pupils so some weeks I can spend 3 hours setting tasks other weeks it can be less
  • Slightly improves teaching efficiency
    As it doesn’t always link to specification and we have to set weekly I have to repeat questions
  • Moderately improves attainment
    Geography has improved slightly since I arrived and have been actively using it

Since Educake was recommended to us by another school in our MAT, it has had a huge impact on the way we work. As busy teachers, having a platform which allows us to easily set, manage and track student outcomes has been a game-changer. The ease of use of the platform has made life easier (and raised wellbeing outcomes) for teachers in our department. We were able to seamlessly adopt Educake as part of our curriculum enrichment programme two years ago and we haven’t looked back since!

Reply from Educake:Thanks for your feedback. We're really happy that Educake helps you manage and track student progress.
Katie Kiernan Brazier found Educake:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Mark book makes it easy and far less time consuming to track completion. It’s really easy to set homework and can be done in a very short amount of time. Our teachers love the ease of access.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    It can be used for a quick cover setting task very easily. Lots of resources that develop skills as well as identify gaps in students’ knowledge.
  • Moderately improves attainment
    Grammar and writing structures, in particular, have been impacted by that particular element. It allows you to revisit and correct mistakes.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    It’s particularly effective for GCSE subjects. It allows students to interleave their learning, correct mistakes and identify misconceptions themselves.
