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.

Read the full case study

With Doddle English, you no longer need to spend valuable time creating resources from scratch nor marking repetitive tests, but can use over 1,800 curriculum-specific resources designed to engage your students.

Quizzes for the new specifications

Our self-marking quizzes help support students’ knowledge recall for the linear exams and deliver formative feedback and revision slides to students as they go.

Our differentiated Assessment Objective quizzes embed core reading and writing skills required for the English Language and English Literature exams, whilst familiarising students with a range of challenging text types.

There are quizzes to cover AO1-AO6, with versions for students working at grades 1-4 and 5-9.

English Literature quizzes test students on key characters and plot development in many popular texts; these and our revision activities can be used alongside the reading of the text or assigned throughout the year to space learning and consolidate knowledge.

We also provide self-marking quizzes for every poem in the AQA Love and Relationships and Power and Conflict Anthologies.

Teaching and testing SPaG

 With over 300 digital SPaG resources you have all the tools you need to teach, test and embed core theory. Our teaching presentations and revision activities help you to deliver engaging lessons and quality independent learning.

Our self-marking SPaG quizzes provide instant results and give students formative feedback.

Question-by-question analysis allows you to identify common misconceptions across the class and target intervention while saving hours of marking time.

Insightful assessment

With Doddle English you can reduce your marking workload and assign targeted intervention for all students.

You can assign and track homework submissions through Doddle and access a question-level analysis of your students’ quiz results in the markbook.

Using these results, combined with students confidence ratings, you can assign individual or whole-class revision to target weaker skills.
