Performance reports

Parents need to know exactly how a student is performing. We look beyond basic reporting to provide insight into how much a student has actually understood.  With an 11PlusDIY report in your artillery, you can track performance accurately, plus, it’ll help you to figure out better ways to keep the students engaged.  

For Parents our reports help:
 
  • Identifying the struggle areas – Questions answered incorrectly or types not finished and accordingly designing actions.
  • Measuring the performance of the student and cohort – The analysis help gauge the capabilities of the individual against the group.
  • Making changes in revision programmes to improve engagement – Enable Parents to make edits in their plans and be more effective.
  • Paying extra attention to weaker areas – It becomes easier to identify areas where students are falling behind, help them cope up with their scores, and possibly conduct extra work plans. 

 

For Student(s) the reports will help to: 

  • Reflect on their overall performance – the detailed insights with an overview of overall performance will give them an idea of where they stand in comparison to their peers.
  • Realign with their goals – Student reports will motivate them to study harder. e.g: if they’ve scored less than their class average, then this comparison will push them to work harder and score more in future.
  • Reach out to Parents for more help – Students can identify the areas of challenge based on their individual reports and reach out for help in overcoming those shortcomings.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a child attend more than one Mock Exam day or a different venue?

Students can attend as many Mock Exams as they wish. Evidence does suggest that performance levels increase with practice.  All 11PlusDIY Mock Exams at the same venue will have different exam papers with different questions demanding different skills and understanding.  If a student changes venue (e.g. Birmingham to Stratford Upon Avon), they may see the same paper within a one or two week period.  We would recommend that students attend only one venue or contact us prior to booking to confirm that the paper is not the same as one they have already completed.  

What is the time allowed for each Mock Exam?

The time limit for the exams is approximately 2 hours, please check the timetable online to see the exact timings of each paper as this may vary depending on the venue.

Are the Mock Exams in a multiple-choice question format?

Each of the Mock Exams are in a multiple-choice format, unless stated otherwise.

When will we get the Mock Exam feedback and results?

Mock Exams are electronically marked and made available to parents normally two working days after the exam, it maybe three.  An email will be sent with the results, but results can be accessed along with viewing mock exam papers through your “account” online.

On arrival at the Mock Exam Centre?

All students must be in the exam room at the start time of the Mock Exam. Parents will be advised of a meeting point prior to the Exam, where they will be met by CRB/DBS qualified staff before students are shown to the exam room.  Parents will not be allowed in the exam room.  Parents will be asked to sign in, show evidence of their child's name and provide confirmation of their booking for the Mock Exam (this can be shown by a smart device or a print out).   Parents provide a mobile number at the time of booking, if this has changed or you are on a different number on the day, please let the tutoring team know when you sign in.

What should a Student take to a Mock Exam?

Please ensure your child arrives with a small bottle of water. Students must also arrive with pencils and a good eraser.  Stationery should be held in a clear plastic pencil case / bag or no bag at all.

After the Mock Exam?

All children must be collected by parents from the advised drop off point and from the local CRB/DBS qualified staff. Parents will be asked to sign out their children.  Please ensure you are ready to collect children at least 10 minutes prior to the end of the Mock Exam, as we are not able to supervise your children once the exam has finished.
