Improve your Computer Science results.

Most learning tools focus on multiple-choice and gap fills. Examgap is a powerful yet simple system for practising written answer exam questions.

Mark more efficiently

Examgap makes marking more efficient. See responses side-by-side with the mark scheme—tick to award marks. Optionally, leave feedback so students know how to improve.

Diagnose strengths & weaknesses

Marks are automatically recorded in a detailed grade book—colour-coded against target grades. This helps you monitor progress to target intervention more effectively.

Differentiation is built in

When you create an assignment, all students start in exam mode. You can quickly differentiate by turning off exam mode. When exam mode is off, students see keywords and a minimum word count when answering questions.

Independent revision

Students can use Examgap for independent revision with no teacher intervention. Supplement paper-based revision guides with essential exam practise.

What teachers say…

"Examgap supports my teaching at GCSE. It's especially good for high achievers."

AlanChauncy School, The Ware Academy for Visual Arts, Mathematics & Computing

"Students found Examgap really helped structure answers. Immediate feedback, combined with comparing self-assessment to the teacher's assessment allowed students to identify mistakes when writing answers."

AndyThe Hertfordshire & Essex High School and Science College

"[The Examgap process], done regularly, creates a cycle of continuous improvement and can lead to better exam results."

GraceSt. Mary's CE High School

"There is clear evidence that . . . assessment can have a positive impact on learning and teaching."*

"Use of low stakes testing can contribute to learning in valuable ways."*

"Teachers can use assessment to help them plan lessons, adapt lessons to measured gaps in knowledge and skills, and if necessary re-teach."*

"Learners who take a test shortly after studying . . . do better on a final test than those who do not."*

Why focus on written answer questions?

Hi—I’m Owen. I've been a teacher for over fourteen years. I created Examgap to use in my department.

We all know students need to practise exam-style questions. Yet most websites focus on multiple choice and gap fills. But GCSE papers aren’t multiple choice†. Therefore, it’s essential students practise written answer questions in order to do well.

Frequent testing with existing question banks is a hassle. You have to print and photocopy the questions, mark them by hand and painstakingly transcribe the results into a spreadsheet. Examgap streamlines this process with:

  • Tick-box marking
  • Automated comment bank
  • Detailed grade book

If you’re a Computing teacher, try it for free. No payment information needed.

If you have any questions, get in touch—owen@examgap.com.

—Cheers, Owen
