Set meaningful homework that’s marked and analysed for you

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.

Automatic marking

Easy and effective independent learning

Intelligent algorithm sets personalised quizzes for every student.


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.

Educake helps students think like a historian

“I love that all of the content is tailored to the exam, so staff don’t need to worry about whether content will be relevant.”
