How can I use Oak's quizzes?

How to make the most of Oak's quizzes to maximise planning, teaching and learning time.

We’ve spoken to hundreds of teachers over the last few months, and they've told us how useful quizzes are to help quickly understand pupil progress.

So, we’ve made a few improvements to our quiz feature to help make sure planning, teaching and learning time is maximised.

Sharing quiz scores

You told us that sharing quiz results would be really valuable to track pupil progress, whether they are learning remotely or in the classroom. We hope this will help to give you a better understanding of each of your pupils’ knowledge and skills, to better shape any catch-up intervention and to personalise revision.

How to share quiz scores

  • Pupils complete a quiz before or after a lesson in our Classroom
  • The quiz is automatically marked and pupils are shown a final score

  • The pupils can then share the score directly to Google Classroom or Microsoft Teams, or copy a unique link to email you or upload to your school’s VLE

  • Teachers are able to see a breakdown of the pupil's answers by question, as well as a final score

Unit Quizzes

Our newly designed Unit Quizzes are a formative tool to help to identify gaps in pupils’ knowledge. They are available in all English, Maths, Science, Geography and History units of work.

Each Unit Quiz features questions selected by our subject specialists. They are drawn from lessons across that unit and cover a breadth of knowledge and skills that pupils would be expected to have a firm grasp on at each key stage.

Recapping, revising and consolidating topics becomes much more easily tailored to the needs of individual pupils. Oak lessons can then be used to address any gaps, either as an in-class resource or by setting the teacher-led video lessons for pupils to learn independently.

Downloadable quizzes

As one of our most popular features, we’ve now made every one of our thousands of quizzes downloadable. Taking them offline is now super easy as teachers get back to the classroom — print off PDF versions for use in and out of class.
