**How Eedi helps**

Every online homework system saves you time by marking students’ work for you. But with Eedi we aim to also help you do your job better. Our results data allows you to instantly see who has completed their homework, which questions students did well at, which questions students struggled with and who resolved misconceptions.

Results data becomes instantly available once your students start working on their assignments.

**Putting it into action**

Let’s imagine you have set your class a quiz on negative numbers. Here are their results:

Immediately we can see a number of things:

Katie and Amanda have not done the homework

Peter has struggled

Most students were fine with questions 1 and 2

Most students struggled with question 4 initially

Question 4 looks like the most important thing for us to look at. One click later we get this screen:

Here we can see that most students went for Option B first. Thinking about 13 as an answer, we can speculate that our students are getting confused with two minuses equaling a plus. We can also see that Peter and Sam have accessed our free, on-demand lesson support - Find out more here.

So, what then happens in class? Well, we may choose to start our next lesson focussing on Question 4. We could put the question up on the board and give students a few minutes to discuss it in their pairs. We could then call upon David to offer his explanation (he got the question correct initially), and then Peter or Sam to see if the online intervention has been successful. We can then offer our own explanation before checking students’ understanding with a related question for them to answer, either diagnostic with ABCD cards, or open-response with mini-whiteboards.

Ensuring homework feeds into lessons this way encourages our students to take it more seriously, and enables us to get a real sense of our students’ understanding.
