Online tutoring for schools
High-quality student assessment
Every student is unique – they begin their time with TLC LIVE with their own challenges and goals and each one progresses at a different pace. To support each individual student as they progress, we have designed a flexible, structured assessment methodology.
The first assessment takes place before or during the pupil’s first session, and follow-up assessments are held every 10 lessons or as requested. This provides evidence of progress in the student’s performance, and the results are accessible to teachers, schools and parents.
Our data shows that, in core subjects, we have consistently made the equivalent of six months of academic progress after just 15 one-hour sessions.
At every assessment, students also complete an “attitude to learning” survey. This monitors their feelings towards the subject and education more broadly – as students become more confident in their academic skills, they often feel better about school.
To deliver the best possible tutoring for schools, our staff review every assessment and adjust their approach accordingly. They can differentiate the complexity of the material, the learning modes, variety within each session, and the pace of progression to suit the pupil.
In addition to assessment data, we also track a range of other variables, including attendance and lesson timings. Any insights we gain from these data points – such as whether a student gets more from afternoon sessions than morning ones – is communicated to the school.
