What is Learning by Questions (LbQ)?

  • Amazing ready-made resources

    A library of teacher-authored, customisable KS2 resources aligned to the National Curriculum and other schemes of work.

    great content for english, maths and science
  • The ultimate x-ray for your class

    LbQ automatically marks pupils' work and presents the teachers with an easy-to-read matrix for powerful interventions in the lesson.

  • Immediate personalised feedback for pupils

    The teacher content creators have considered every misconception a child may have for a question and written bespoke feedback for each answer. It's like having an extra teacher on their shoulder.

Why use LbQ?

Because you need reliable classroom tools.

Because you deserve a better work/life balance.

Because printed resources are so last century.

Because there's only 1 of you and 30 pupils in your class.

Because homework has become harder work for teachers than for pupils.

Because assessments have become way too stressful.

Teachers and pupils love us

  • ”I like it because my teacher can see when I go wrong and help me. It also has a good variety of questions that start easy and then go harder so the teacher doesn't have to set lots of work (for people at other stages). She doesn't have to mark tons and tons of work for us (it marks itself).“

    Yr 6 Pupil, St Marys, Cognita

  • ”It also fills up a whole lesson (1 hour). It gives us clues that help a lot, so I don't have to ask my teacher. I love LbQ. I would get it if I was you.“

    Yr 6 Pupil, St Marys, Cognita
