If you want your school added to registration form please contact me here. Make sure you spell your school exactly as how you would want it listed on the site.

No. The entire site is free to use so enjoy!

I am a maths teacher, can I have an 'teacher account'?

Yes. If you want a free 'teacher account' just contact us with the id of your school. You may also want to read the teacher account tutorial.

What does the 'teacher account' do?

If you have an 'teacher account' you will get additional options when you view your statistics.

The 'Admin Panel' lets you track the progress of any pupils that register on the site using your school name. Once a pupil has registered you can place them into year groups and set and carry out instant analysis of your classes.

'Pupil Feedback' lets you generate instant written feedback for your pupils. It lists the two most difficult worksheets that the pupils has completed successfully and gives two suggestions on what they should attempt next. If you wish to print you will get the best results if you copy the feedback into a word processor and set view to 'landscape'.

More information can be found in the teacher account tutorial.

I've got my pupils to register but can't find them on the admin panel, how come?

First check the pupils chose your school when they registered. If so go to the admin panel and search for 'all years' 'all sets'. You can then click on individual students to view their information.

If are a pupil and your teacher has registered for an admin account they will be able to change your password for you. Passwords on this site are stored in encrypted format in a database for your security.
