I'm looking for an online solution to help with exams in a secondary school, why should we choose Get My Grades?
Get My Grades is a comprehensive teaching and assessment tool to relieve teacher workload, increase student accountability and improve parent communication - designed by teachers and experts to give your school the edge. What makes Get My Grades the best edtech platform on the market?
Great value, with a price match guarantee
Get My Grades offers fantastic value for schools. We know school budgets are tight so we offer a price match guarantee for schools on top of tremendous discounts for institutions. This allows their students to benefit from Get My Grades for a fraction of the cost that private users pay.
Backed by the latest research
The design of Get My Grades is backed by wide-ranging research into how best to help students learn. We are collaborating with the University of Plymouth to carry out active research into learning and assessment to constantly improve our platform - which schools can participate in for no additional cost, to receive privileged access to our research findings.
At Get My Grades we take cybersecurity and regulatory compliance extremely seriously. Our technical system follows industry best practices, protecting your data from a wide range of threats. This includes encryption of data at rest and in transit, hosting by Amazon Web Services and award-winning cyber risks insurance to deal with any threat. We also train all our staff to mitigate any chance of a breach using Phishing (and similar) attacks.
Clear and detailed content - not just videos!
Our educational content is designed by teachers and subject experts. It is a combination of interactive text, simple diagrams and informative videos. Unlike other providers, we do not offer solely video content: the pace of video content can be inappropriate for some students and it is almost impossible to use as a reference tool. Once students watch videos, they often consider the content ‘completed’, regardless of their level of understanding.
Unlike most edtech platforms that just offer multiple choice, we offer a diverse range of question types. This is important because research shows that students do better when they practise questions that are similar to those they will get in their final assessment. Our questions are based on real GCSEs or other examinations, with detailed feedback and answer explanations.
