How does our diagnostic work?

Through asking a series of multiple choice questions, the maths diagnostic tool accurately pinpoints the level each child is working at. Then our adaptive learning engine uses the results to tailor future questions, providing a personalised learning journey.

We get to know your pupils

We use the diagnostic results to set the unique learning level of every child. This informs the level of questions they’ll be asked as they play Sumdog games.

For completing the diagnostic test, each child receives coins to spend on their Sumdog house, garden and avatar, helping them feel motivated to learn.
