Skillsmastery Online Platform

Do you want to improve your literacy and English results this year?

SkillsMastery is an online learning platform that schools can subscribe to. Using Ipads, other tablets and laptops, students can access SkillsMastery and access their learning. SkillsMastery uses bespoke texts which complement the curriculum to demonstrate grammar, spelling and punctuation techniques and shows students not only what the technique is, but how it can be used in a specific context linking the learning. SkillsMastery uses the principles of Mastery teaching so that the building blocks of literacy are secure before students can build their deeper learning. Suitable for students working at the expected levels for KS2 and KS3, students work at their own pace independently to build their literacy knowledge.

The experiment

At Parks Academy, Hull, in addition to their standard curriculum, a group of key pupils used SkillsMastery during intervention sessions. During each forty-minute session, the pupils used SkillsMastery, the only online grammar platform, independently under adult supervision, over a period of 10 weeks using tablets or laptops.

 

The results

  1. All of the students who used SkillsMastery moved from below end of year 6 expectations to achieving end of year 6 expectations in both grammar and reading.
  2. Pupils who used SkillsMastery improved their progress in grammar, spelling and punctuation by 66% compared to their peers.
  3. Pupils who used SkillsMastery also improved their reading by 40% compared to their peers.

Reasons why this outstanding progress happens.

  • Grammar terminology is used, but explained through real-world examples.
  • Grammar features are shown in a literature or non-fiction context.
  • Links are made between the grammar feature and the effect of the feature.
  • Pupils are able to practise without fear of being exposed.
  • The principles of Mastery Teaching are used.
  • Memory is linked to learning and the repetitive nature of the course allows the grammar features to become embedded into working memory.
