How did students and staff at DOYRMS use sAInaptic?
sAInaptic was mainly used by our Year 11 students for their independent revision as part of their preparation for GSCE science examinaitons. Being a boarding school, our students have set study times every evening. sAInaptic was used by students mainly during this time. The instant feedback is brilliant and extremely informative. It enables students to reflect on their answers and learn from their mistakes immediately, which makes their revision more effective.
We feel more able students used it better, simply because they had the cognitive skill to reflect and learn from the feedback. The less able students need to be trained to reflect and learn from the feedback, which hopefully, we will be able to do this in future. My own daughter used sAInaptic for her GCSE Biology exam revision and she loved it!
