Yes, lots of students use Educake for independent learning or revision. There are three ways they can set themselves tests.
Set a test from My Educake
Students can set themselves tests by clicking on this button in their course [in this example, the course is GCSE (9-1) Science]:
They'll choose the subject and then the topic they'd like to review, and then enter the number of questions they'd like to answer. They'll also be able to select whether they want to include "HT only" questions. "HT only" questions are higher tier only questions - students who know they're taking the foundation tier exam papers don't need to cover this material. Educake will then automatically generate a test for them, and the questions will be self-marked just like in the tests that teachers set. Students will also see the same results grid and progress tracking after the test.
Set a test while viewing results
When a student finishes a test you’ve set them, they have the option to view their progress across topics, as shown below. When they do this, they can click on the arrow next to any topic to take a short 10-question test on that topic. They'll be able to select whether the test includes "HT only" questions.
