Here at 2Simple, we have just announced an exciting new update on Purple Mash – The Multiplication Tables Check.
The announcement of a statutory multiplication check was received by schools with mixed feelings. How will data from the check be used and will the data generated from it be adequate enough to be utilised in raising standards? Where is this data published and who can see it? How will pupils access the test and ultimately how will schools prepare for it?
In response to this change, we have created the 2Simple Multiplication Tables Check. This has been designed to mirror the format of the Government Multiplication Tables Check, but includes additional features to help maximise pupil performance when they come to doing the real test.
It has been designed to be easy to use and accessible to all children in the school, including those with visual impairments. It can also be assigned to any pupil in just a couple of clicks, with the option for pupils to complete it during or outside school hours. Every time a pupil accesses the tables check, data is generated, which is then presented in our easy to view Data Dashboard. This has options to exclude or include specific parameters e.g. completed during school hours.
The use of data makes it easy for teachers to check individual and whole class progression as well as pinpoint any areas which children may be finding difficult.
The Multiplication Tables Check is a great new addition to Purple Mash which we hope that you will enjoy using!
