BOFA is a unique online learning platform, where every question comes as a triplet. The initial test is followed by bespoke teaching and practice, then a unique retest, which creates detailed subject reports to identify learning needs for both individuals and groups.
In a pupil's Initial Test, pupils answer questions designed to test their current knowledge across a selection of topics. This is instantly marked, informing both you, the pupil and, if you wish, the parent by email.
The pupil then moves on to the practice & explanation stage, only being shown their wrong answers with bespoke explanation and teaching. This is followed by a similar practice question which also comes with explanations and teaching if necessary.
After about a week, so that the pupil is not just testing their short-term memory, pupils move on to the Retest, which contains the final question in the triplet. The errors at this stage are placed into the pupil reports.
BOFA then emails the tutor and parents, detailing how much progress the pupil has made from initial test to retest. The Report is then generated on the individual pupil's tests page. This report includes the questions that they answered incorrectly during the retest, with corresponding answers and explanations sorted by topic. Tutors and centre managers can export subject report spreadsheets to compare learning needs across cohort.
The BOFA 11+ Consortium tests have been specifically requested by some of our Prep schools to try and replicate the experience of the London 11+ Consortium Test including; style, content and functionality. The actual exam is on paper, but teachers wanted the tests marked and with 3 stage learning process. There are 15 BOFA 11+ London Consortium mock tests available, the minimum purchase is 3 as we believe a single mock will possibly do more harm than good for the pupil.
Filter the teaching that takes place to be more personalised and efficient by using BOFA as a net to identify topics that pupils are already confident in. BOFA will show you exactly where learning needs are not being met. Many tutoring centres group pupils after they have used BOFA, in order to focus on different topics based on the areas BOFA has flagged as needing further work.
Due to the nature of BOFA, an entire tuition class does not need to be present to complete an exercise, as pupils can easily catch up on missed work, as the tests can be done at any time.
Planet BOFA saves time by only teaching topics that pupils need to learn; pupils enjoy the independent learning with regular praise. Tutors benefit from time saved marking and preparing for tuition sessions, and can use their valuable time to work on only the topics that really need extra work.
This is what makes BOFA so special, the attention to detail that allows us to nurture the potential in every child.
Someday, everyone will learn the BOFA way!
