Show my Homework has been an invaluable tool for us, particularly throughout the challenging times of COVID: it's also very easy to use, and the Team have responded really well to feedback, creating new features which extend the effectiveness of SMH as a teaching and learning tool.

Reply from Satchel One:Thank you for your review! We do find all feedback really useful and we take it very seriously here at Satchel. We're glad to hear we made a difference during the difficult times of COVID.
Mr Flynn found Satchel One:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    The ability to quickly re-use work, ease of editing, preparing drafts ahead of time, ability for other members of Faculty to share resource, Self-marking and analysis of comprehension in Quiz mode can direct future study areas.
  • Moderately improves school processes
    Throughout the pandemic SMH has been essential in providing a familiar platform for students to access online learning resources. We also used the comment section to effectively communicate with our students. provide feedback, and pastoral support.
  • Moderately improves parent engagement
    Parents sometimes communicated via comment section, many parents like the ability to monitor their child's homework/work.

Saves lots of teachers time - easy for students to use on multiple platforms

Reply from Satchel One:Reducing teacher workload is our number 1 priority!
Andy Braithwaite found Satchel One:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Attach worksheets / No printing of worksheets / Reuse HW for different classes / online submissions of work
  • Moderately improves school processes
    The expectation by Parents that HW is always published on SMHW. Platform for students to submit work
  • Slightly improves parental engagement
    Becoming more useful, but Parental engagement still low - parents do not understand SMHW enough - engagement is often parents querying either lack of HW or submissions

It is very efficient; allows parental access; archives tasks; allows 2 way communication between pupils and teachers; keeps records and much more. We don't use seating plans, timetabling or behavior in Satchel One but I wish we did.

Emma found Satchel One:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    It enables students to be more organized about there homework and enables increased parental involvement both of which have a positive impact on attainment.
  • Not significantly reduces teacher workload
    It allows documents, presentations and links to be attached saving printing and allows homework tasks to be reused/edited for other groups and shared with colleagues.

Good to share workload across a department and to track students' knowledge; parents like being able to see that too.

Clare found Satchel One:
  • Not significantly improves attainment
    Good for students learning key knowledge like quotations; knowing quotations helps them improve their attainment in the Lit exams.
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    As a department, we have each taken responsibility for doing quizzes for spelling and knowledge of key info in a scheme. They are a bit onerous to set up, but links can be shared and then we don't all have to do them individually. Great as well to track scores in spelling tests.

Siobhan

Teacher of Science

Used Satchel One for 2.5 years

Jul 2020

I would like to see the recurring feature added for regular HW (see Q9). I also think that expanding the quiz feature where questions can be posed that ask pupils to type a short, one word answer would be helpful. The multiple choice option is great, but they only make up a small portion of an exam paper so pupils need to be able to recall names etc. and not always chose it from a set of options. It is difficult to create a platform whereby pupils can write extended answers (Google Forms works to an extent here) but answers for 'state the name of...' questions could be loaded by the teacher when creating the quiz. Teachers would still need to be able to overwrite the mark given to allow them to give marks for misspellings etc.

Siobhan found Satchel One:
  • Slightly improves attainment
    Pupils can be held accountable by parents so may complete more work (especially over this lockdown period).
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
    A regular piece of HW set is a reminder to complete Tassomai questions. I log who has completed them in Satchel:One and award stamps for highest number etc. However, I have re re-use the same HW every week which is time consuming. Being able to re-use HW is helpful compared to always having to start from scratch however, if there were an option to tick the HW as recurring then I could choose multiple dates and set the HW for the term. I like being able to set HW in advance as it is sometimes easier to block this in when I have time, especially at the start of the term. The new options for flexible tasks etc. is a great addition also. I do not make enough use of the community feature.

It isn't perfect but the functions they have work really well, and there is lots in development too. The customer service is excellent, and they are very responsive to suggestions. The apps are easy to use and really enhance the system, for example it is super easy to tick off homework on the app if it is completed on a different website. Not 10 yet as the detentions module needs more development and the parent app should mirror what the teacher ticks off as completed not what the student ticks off.

Tina found Satchel One:
  • Slightly improves attainment
    Unsure, as we have only used it properly since lockdown. Prior to that we posted homework through it but didn't use it to monitor work. We haven't yet measured attainment since lockdown
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Easy to post homework (reuse tasks), students submit via the app so no need to log when it comes in, no need for extra records of work, seating plan can replace printing of class lists or photos, easy to add behaviour through the seating plan. All of these save time
