As a Trust, we are always looking for ways to extend our students’ learning.
Part of our improvement programme involves the use of SAM Learning, a unique online service that offers multiple subjects. All activities are tailored for specific exam boards, and studies show that students can achieve 2 GCSE grades better than expected with as little as 10 hours or more use of SAM Learning.
Tasks & Homework with SAM Learning
Tasks, like homework, can now be set using SAM Learning. Students are able to access tasks assigned to them via their SAM Learning account by clicking on the ‘My Set Tasks’ tab. This tab shows when the task (and related activities) is due to be completed, if it is or has not been completed and also if it is overdue.
- All completed activities are either computer or self marked, depending on the type of activity. Instant feedback is provided screen-by-screen and total points/scores earned are reported at the end of the activity. Additionally, students, parents and guardians can track progress through the student’s account by clicking on the ‘My Progress’ tab.
- All staff receive a report on the tasks assigned and have access to detailed report information through their teacher or administrator account. Students are also able to re-visit activities at any time to improve on their last score.
All students will be taught to use the service and you might wish to ask them how it works. The service enables homework to be set and marked which means you can easily monitor the progress of your child.
