    • your students homework experience enjoyable and
    • beneficial.
    On the topic of Homework
  • ResultsPlus Booster
    • One of the most commonly recurring problems with
    • homework for students is ‘getting stuck’.
    • ResultsPlus Booster:
    • Talks students through homework problems so they understand how to approach a problem
    • Fills in the answer to a step in a problem if a student gets it wrong 3 times so that they can see the correct answer and continue to work through the problem
    • Provides students with learning aids to help them if they get stuck on a problem.
    Problems with homework

    • Gives students immediate, encouraging feedback if they get a question right.
    • Automatically marks a student’s answers and gives them access to all their results.
    Homework motivation
  • ResultsPlus Booster
    • Many parents believe their students spend too much time
    • on homework and that teachers are unaware of this.
    • ResultsPlus Booster:
    • Monitors the amount of time that a student spends on a homework assignment and on each individual question so that a teacher can tell if a student is spending too much or too little time.
    Time spent on homework
  • ResultsPlus Booster
    • 57% of students sometimes do more homework than necessary
    • because they are interested in it. The following increase motivation for
    • homework:
    • A feeling of autonomy
    • Being aware of the purpose of a homework

    • Students want the opportunity to feed back to teachers
    • about their homework
    • ResultsPlus Booster:
    • Allows students to email their teacher directly from a question with a query or observation and a direct link to that question.
    Student voice
  • ResultsPlus Booster
    • Students do not always record homework in their planner
    • and often forget to bring it back into school.
    • ResultsPlus Booster:
    • Has a calendar in which assignments appear on the date they are made available and on the date they are due so students will remember to do them.
    • A student’s marks are available to their teacher in his/her mark book as soon as the student has done that homework.

    • homework for different ability levels.
