High-quality, low-stakes testing for KS3 and GCSE English Language and Literature
Educake is the easy way to set meaningful tasks that students will enjoy, with all the marking and analysis done for you.
We have thousands of questions, carefully written by English teachers for English teachers.
Set meaningful homework that’s marked and analysed for you
Nowadays it seems like there’s more content to cover than ever before. We know that English teachers face a constant struggle to set meaningful homework that students can complete independently. And there’s the burden of marking it all.
We’ve worked really hard with teachers to produce high-quality questions that increase students’ knowledge, cultural capital and skills, but can still be automatically marked and analysed.
Fully functional, unlimited students and teachers for 30 days with no obligation.
Educake uses high-quality extracts in its questions
Choose from hundreds of questions that develop core skills
Students can struggle to achieve higher grades at GCSE without core skills such as a broad vocabulary or a proper understanding of literary techniques
Educake has hundreds of questions to help students develop these skills through effective retrieval practice. Because it only takes seconds to set homework and everything is marked for you, students can work independently without increasing your workload.
Get the most out of retrieval practice with Educake
Teachers often tell us how important they think retrieval practice is for English. Educake can be a helpful assistant as you work to set up an effective retrieval practice routine, and allow you to devote your energy and expertise to the areas of your practice that have the greatest impact.
Our English Lead, Alison, a former English teacher, shares some ideas for teachers looking to embed retrieval practice into their teaching:English retrieval practice and Educake

Motivate your students
Students love the instant feedback that Educake gives them after every question. They love being able to set themselves tests. They love being able to do their homework on their phone. And you can use student league tables to motivate them even more.
I think Educake is amazing it really helps with my recent scores and it also gives us the answers when you get something wrong.
