What do teachers say about this resource? (6642)

The resource is divided into sections that match the spec, making it easy to set as a homework or targeted revision task... I like that there are both open and closed questions, so that deeper thought and revision of class material is encouraged....I really like the varied formats of question – ensure students less likely to become bored. It would make a good resource for revision for students to download on a VLE... Answers were provided – love this.

Fabulous. There's a tailored test for each element of the three units of the AQA Elizabethan England 1568-1603 course. The coverage is extensive and tests every element of the main components of the course. The answer sections are really helpful for novices to teaching this subject. I love the fact that each test comes complete with exemplar answers and this makes it easier for marking or even for students to peer assess or self-evaluate their work. I like the differentiated nature of the tests and the way the tasks become increasingly more difficult.

What do teachers say about this resource? (8067)

I found this resource to be detailed and well structured. It tests both knowledge and understanding. Students can test themselves at the end of each relevant topic area in precise knowledge based detail. The mark schemes are detailed and clear. I would purchase this resource as it gives clear testing and would give clear results. This is an essential resource for the new exam.

The question types would be extremely useful for knowledge recall revision. The 1 and 2 mark questions are good because they help students build up specific knowledge they can use... very useful for revision especially.

This resource is very good, it is imperative for this age group to be tested in short bursts frequently to allow for educational learning. This resource allows that in an effective and interesting manner... here is a variety of question types which will keep this age group engaged. I like that they are based on the content of the specification, not just exam questions, so that the teacher can ensure that the students are learning the content.

A very comprehensive set of tests with a range of different activities (grids, images, matching tasks). These ensure that knowledge is being tested in a variety of ways.
