LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS

Learning environments? What do you mean?

At the request of schools, we offer three different choices of learning environment in terms of our exercise set answers, solutions and walkthroughs.

What are answers, solutions and walkthroughs?
  • Answers are what are found at the back of a schoolbook.
  • Solutions are what a student should write down when answering a question, i.e. they are what are found in a teacher’s handbook.
  • Walkthroughs are detailed explanations of where the solutions come from.

All three of these are provided for every exercise set question.

What are the three different learning environments?

\[\,\]

1) Full Access

In this environment, both students and teachers always have full access to all exercise set answers, solutions and walkthroughs.

This is equivalent to each student and teacher purchasing one of our individual memberships (but cheaper!).

Schools should choose this environment if… the exercise sets will not be used as schoolwork or homework. Instead, they will be used as additional questions that students can practice with in their own time.

\[\,\]

2) Traditional

In this environment, students always have access to answers only whereas teachers always have access to answers, solutions and walkthroughs.

This is equivalent to a more traditional setup in which students have access only to answers at the back of a schoolbook whereas teachers also have access to the solutions in a teacher’s handbook (with the added bonus of walkthroughs as well!)

Schools should choose this environment if… the exercise sets will be used as schoolwork and/or homework.

\[\,\]

3) Customised

In this environment, the school instead describes to us what environment they’d like!

For example, a school may wish for our mock exams to be hidden from student accounts so that they may be used as class tests. Or perhaps they would prefer the mock exam questions to remain visible but the solutions to be hidden etc.

Schools should choose this environment if… they have other resources that they would like hidden on student accounts.

NOTES
  • A school can set up a different environment across each of our websites. For example, a school without an applied maths teacher may wish to have a traditional environment for maths but a full access environment for applied maths.
  • Schools can request to move from one environment to another at any point during the year. This request can be made by email and is typically fulfilled within just a few minutes!
