For secondary school teachers

Being a teenager is no piece of cake, but neither is educating one. We know that secondary school teachers are specialists not only in their subject but in educating young people too.

This is why LbQ is there to support great teachers, not replace them.

Why secondary teachers love LbQ

Giving enough feedback to everyone, all of the time

It's marking, it's assessments, it's having enough time in lessons to get around everyone. It's really hard work.

But it doesn't need to be. Learning by Questions provides individualised feedback for every answer given.

Quality data in a timely fashion

The thing about data is: the juice has got to be worth the squeeze. If the data is good quality, but you lost your entire weekend getting it, is it worth it?

Data from LbQ is gathered and presented to the teacher in the moment, you can go back to it and with our 'Tracked Classes' feature, you also have a long-term overview.

Progress 8: a tough nut to crack

Ensuring progress for all in every lesson is the crux of a teacher's job. It's what we live for. But accelerated progress for all, in every lesson, is about as difficult as explaining Progress 8 to a non-teacher.

Learning by Questions tackles accelerated progress on multiple fronts, most importantly in the feedback students receive after every answer.

Inclusive teaching

You don't need to label students to know that they all have different learning needs. How do you cater to everyone? You guessed it!

Learning by Questions' feedback is personalised and each student has the ability to move through a task at their own pace. And you get the data to know who needs your extra help.

Engagement and behaviour

We won't get into the 'hormones thing', but teens can be tough to teach.

Learning by Questions helps to engage students in their learning by providing them feedback that they can act on straight away.

We've also heard the youth of today quite like working digitally too. Win, win.

Getting kids to pass their exams

'Elephant in the room' time. Of course, school isn't all about passing exams, but it definitely helps to have some GCSEs under your belt when you leave.

Learning by Questions' resources are created with examinations in mind - we've even created GCSE-style questions to practise the inevitable.

Your TA tag team!

If you're lucky enough to have a TA in any of your classes, utilising them makes for the best teaching and learning tag team.

With LbQ, you can both have eyes on where the help is needed. Your TA can be working with a small group on a different Question Set. It's perfect for interventions!

Using tech for teaching & learning

It's all very well using tech in the classroom, but if it doesn't make a difference to learning, then sorry, we're out.

LbQ does make a difference - we really put the 'ed' before the 'tech' through the teacher-written questions and feedback. That being said, it's also a great way of using tech to reduce your workload and support everyone in the classroom.

What teachers say

  • ”LbQ provides a fast, efficient way to plan aspects of lessons to support revision and achieve learning. A great resource and tool to use in the classroom.“

    Jayna Merchant
    Hyndburn Academy

  • ”Pupils enjoy using LbQ and find the questions engaging & challenging.“

    Nazira Patel
    Witton Park Academy

    Nazira Patel

    Abbi Master
    Bolton Muslim Girls School

  • ”Excellent range of questions that perfectly match the specifications.“

    Gareth Pugh
    Wigan and Leigh College

  • ”Perfect for recapping and revising.“

    Zoe Saunders
    Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School

  • ”After using LbQ for so many years now, I think I often take it for granted just how lucky I am and just how lucky my pupils are.“

    Jenna Sanderson
    Ribblesdale High School

  • ”I would now not consider going to a school that wouldn't use LbQ, simply because we get through so much more content per lesson. There's a lot less time wasted. I don't spend time going over things that pupils can do, but equally, I very quickly know what they can't do and know what to spend the time on.“

    Emma Tranter
    Ribblesdale High School

  • ”I dread the thought of having to go back to marking endless books and not realising that pupils have got it wrong until it's too late. I just don't want to go back to the world before LbQ.“

    Emma Tranter
    Ribblesdale High School

  • ”On the GCSE questions, the ability to be able to differentiate according to mathematical ability by either giving the equation, equation triangle or without any support is excellent.“

    Zoe Saunders
    Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School

  • ”The GCSE assessment style question sets have been incredibly useful to help pupils get used to problem-solving questions.“

    Jenna Sanderson
    Ribblesdale High School

  • ”The way we use LbQ once we get to year 10 and 11 doesn't really change. The Question Sets really do challenge pupils. We've found that the higher GCSE sets have some really good problem-solving and reasoning questions that are really making pupils think and that really model the actual GCSE questions on the papers.“
