Proven impact on progress
A series of independent studies by FFT (Fischer Family Trust) were conducted over a 10-year period including hundreds of thousands of students per year. Students with 10 hours of e-learning during an academic year – equivalent to two 10-minute activities per week – consistently showed significant impact on progress. All students improved and students with low prior attainment improved nearly double the average.
- All Students: 1 GCSE grade better in 2.0 subjects (+0.20)
- Disadvantaged Students: 1 GCSE grade better in 3.5 subjects (+0.35)

Intervention in the same lesson as the teaching
“I think the biggest difference is that almost instant feedback… within the lesson the students have tried something, got feedback and most of the time had some intervention work as well”
Ian Windsor, Head of Science, Norton Canes High School
