“Doddle is a really good assessment tool because it gives us a profile of what students can and can’t do. With the old National Curriculum levels system, it was impossible to allocate a level to an individual activity so you always got a best-fit number, which didn’t really mean anything. But with Doddle students know exactly what it is they have to work on to improve.”
“Doddle enables us to support students in mastering core skills while those students who are already confident can move on with their learning, and this is one of the reasons I would recommend it.”
