Online self marking tests for class

    Next year I will be teaching a bottom set Year 10 class, I have booked a computer room once a week. I was hoping to find an online resource that they could log in on and be tested each week. They will be low ability so this would need to quite basic GCSE Foundation questions. Ideally it would self mark and then they could use this to help them in the lesson the week after. I was wondering if anyone has used anything like this before and had any suggestions for what I could use?

    Khan Academy has tons of topics you can work on, I guess there's always MyMaths as well if you have a subscription?

    It might not be a popular answer but I'd cancel the booking and make sure they do more practise with pen and paper.

    I used to use something called Tanida Quiz Builder. I found it easy to get to grips with, and start producing quizzes. It has some useful features, such the ability to set limits for who can take the quiz, when it becomes available and for how long, and tailor feedback based on their response. It automatically emailed the results each time a student took the quiz, including which questions they got right and which they got wrong. I could
    also export the group results to Excel if I needed to.

    I don't suppose all the styles of questions available would lend themselves to Maths questions, but that might depend on how you present them ? You create the questions by typing them in, but I assume you could just as easily cut and paste maths symbols if needed.

    I found it useful, but you could try a free sample first and see if it does what you need it to.

    Try Diagnostic Questions - the key feature of making students explain their choice is brilliant to help plan remedial work.

    Definitely use Diagnostic Questions.
    It has many premade exams, and it is written by subject specialist teachers as well.
    The two advantages for DQ over many other platforms are:
    1. Space for students to write their own description, instead of just choosing from a multiple-choice list
    2. End of exam analysis is very thorough and extensive, which is a brilliant tool to use when breakdown misconceptions and common mistakes

    I've made something like this: https://sparkmaths.com/index-homework.html
    It's prerequistie questions, a video, multiple choice questions then a worksheet on most topics.

    It doesn't output the results to you because there are no logins/accounts but I can program the feature if you like the resource and can tell me how you'd like results presented.
