How BOFA Works

Tell us who you are

Planet BOFA is the only online Maths tutoring system that builds a unique learning experience around each child. Our unique formative learning approach: test, teach and retest, identifies areas needing improvement and plugs any gaps in knowledge.

ASSESSING A CHILD’S CURRENT ABILITY

First, children take an initial test. This determines which question types they can answer correctly, and lets us know which are proving challenging. Tests are organised by the 6 main syllabus topics and are given a star rating to show the test’s difficulty.

PLENTY OF PRACTICE AND EXPLANATION

After the initial test, your child moves to the practice stage. Here, they’ll see any incorrectly answered questions from the initial test alongside an explanation of how the correct answer was found. We then give a practice question designed to test the same concept to check they know where they went wrong.

CHECKING KNOWLEDGE IS EMBEDDED LONG-TERM

The BOFA AI algorithm will schedule your retest, the wait-time with varies from pupil to pupil. This will check for improvement since the initial test. We delay the retest to ensure knowledge is embedded in the long-term memory. Any errors made at this stage are put into a personalised report with correct answers available to view.

Adaptive testing makes revision easy

Our adaptive testing is ideal for long-term revision of the whole syllabus. We use your child’s target grade and exam date to plan a bespoke learning schedule that can be worked into a revision timetable.

We’ll automatically move them up and down difficulty levels to keep them on track for their target grade and ensure all topics are covered before the exam.

Tests are sorted by syllabus strand/topic, for example: Number, Algebra, Ratio, Geometry, Probability and Statistics.
