High-quality, low-stakes testing for GCSE History
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 to support the Edexcel GCSE specification, carefully written by history teachers for history teachers.
Set meaningful homework that's marked and analysed for you
There's a huge amount to cover in history, and students need regular retrieval practice to stay on top of the content. But they also need to do more than simply recite facts – they need to really understand what they're learning and make connections, and know how to express themselves in the exam.
We know that history teachers are under more pressure than ever to set meaningful work that students can complete independently. We've worked with history teachers to produce high-quality questions that increase students' understanding of history and second-order historical concepts, but can still be automatically marked and analysed.
Fully functional, unlimited students and teachers for 30 days with no obligation.
Educake uses authentic primary sources to help students think like a historian
Choose from hundreds of questions that develop knowledge and understanding
Students need regular retrieval practice so that they'll be ready with the content they need to know, and the second-order concepts they need to apply it.
Educake has hundreds of questions written to develop these skills in students, and because it only takes seconds to set homework and it's marked for you, students can work independently on these without increasing your workload.
See your students' strengths and weaknesses
Our clear test results page lets you identify your class's problem areas and identify underperforming students, so you can focus on these areas next.
Educake has changed how I teach, based on what I found out from the tests. The misconceptions are often not what I think they are, so I can then change what to focus on.

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.
