Initial analysis

When a child gets started, every question response is analysed to build up a picture of a child’s understanding. The responses allow our algorithm to determine two things: first, a child’s Zone of Proximal Development – that is, the narrow band between what a child can do unaided and what they can’t do; second, their weaker areas – the concepts within the national curriculum where they have not fully developed their understanding. Over time, enough data is collected for the ‘design’ part of the algorithm to take effect.

Initially, questions are achievable, but as the child builds in confidence and Proxima™ gets closer to establishing their learning needs, questions become harder and more probing.

Our mantra: Little and often gets results

Review is best done on a daily basis. We know of countless children who have piano lessons every week. The ones who move through the grades are the ones who put in their daily practice. Maths is no different.

Uniquely, DoodleMaths is designed to be used for ten minutes a day, always keeping children working in their Zone of Proximal Development through the 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10-a-day. These questions are designed for children to be able to work independently, and are chosen according to the following criteria:

to reinforce topics that have been recently learned
to reinforce topic areas in which the individual needs further practice
to review the prerequisites for upcoming topics
to help identify other weak areas

This means that in the DoodleMaths learning system, no two children will receive the same set of questions – creating a daily unique user experience.

Measuring progress through the online Teacher Dashboard

As children continue working through their programme, rich data will be collected for teachers and school leaders and stored on the Teacher Dashboard. Teachers can confidently track impact and measure progress from across the whole school down to an individual child. Teachers can use the online dashboard to:

Analyse curriculum coverage and discover gaps in your students’ knowledge
Easily track progress and demonstrate the positive impact through intelligent data exports
As DoodleMaths rewards effort over ability, identify those whose efforts should be celebrated
