This is how tutor centres are using our cutting-edge learning system.

LESSON 1: CLASS

1. With their tutor, pupils log on to:
- Complete a short demo test across English, Maths, VR or NVR
- Get a taste of all the stages of the Planet BOFA platform

2. Automatic marking returns:
- Simple explanations paired with any incorrect answers
- Tailored practice questions around these weaker areas, which the pupils complete

3. Pupils now take the bespoke ‘retest’ in the same subject:
- It has a laser focus on the areas already identified for development

4. Here is the instant report, presenting:
- Questions they didn’t get right, with answers and explanations, organised into topics

Good to know: The administrator, tutor and parent receive the instant report by email, with the score and time spent (unless they’ve been opted out of notifications).

LESSON 1: HOMEWORK

Tutors set:
The first full-length test. Pupils complete only the initial part at home. The ensuing practice questions are done in the classroom during lesson 2.

LESSON 2 ONWARDS: CLASS

1. Tutors go through the tailored practice questions that have been produced from the full-length test done as homework.

2. They also go over the initial questions from that test that were answered incorrectly.

LESSON 2 ONWARDS: HOMEWORK

Tutors set:
1. The retest from Lesson 2 (thereby finishing that test cycle).
2. A new full-length test, probably in a new subject. Pupils complete only the initial part at home. The ensuing practice questions are done in the classroom, where the tailored-practice-plus-bespoke retest cycle will begin again.

Good to know:

A report is emailed when each retest is complete. It signals the end of each individual test circuit.

Report data can be viewed individually or across a cohort, and exported in a click. It’s organised into topics to make a ‘pot of gold’ for tutors – a brilliant resource that enables super-efficient teaching of the weaker areas in class.>

Pupils are keen to do Planet BOFA homework because it’s fun. Direct them to wait 2-7 days before starting the retest or they’ll be demonstrating short-term memory rather than long term learning.
