Assessment and Exam Preparation
We take a cognitive research-based approach to testing with our Cycle Test Programme. This is a weekly test (of all academic subjects on a rotational basis) under examination conditions for all students in Years 4 upwards. The function of these tests is to provide a snapshot of what a student has achieved, to embed the learning they have done, and to reduce the stress associated with high-stakes assessment through ongoing familiarity with the process. They are also used as diagnostic tools to let teachers know what has been learned by the students and to flag further areas needing consolidation.
Students also undergo two mock exams, known as ‘double trials’. This combination of mocks with cycle testing prepares students for public exams better than any other system.
Students from Inspired schools across the world have achieved outstanding and record-setting results, despite the extraordinary circumstances triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Inspired’s online, live and continuous e-learning system stepped in seamlessly during the Covid-19 crisis, ensuring their learning was uninterrupted, and students’ ambitions and university aspirations achieved.
