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.
Students can use Examgap for independent revision with no teacher intervention. Supplement paper-based revision guides with essential exam practise.
What people say…
"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."
Andy—The Hertfordshire & Essex High School and Science College

Why practise written answer questions?
Hi—I’m Owen, a Computer Science and I.T. teacher for fourteen years.
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. A typical Computer Science paper is only around 13% closed questions. Therefore, it’s essential students practise written answer questions in order to do well.
Frequent testing using existing question banks is a hassle. In my department, this meant finding and photocopying questions, marking them by hand and then painstakingly copying the results into a spreadsheet. Examgap streamlines this process with tick-box marking, an automated comment bank, and detailed grade book.
If you’re a Computing teacher, please give Examgap a try. You can try it for free with no payment information.
