Tassomai is an award winning piece of software that promotes students’ retention and understanding of the material covered in GCSE Science qualifications, through the continual retrieval of knowledge, which research studies have shown will promote long term memory (Efrat Furst, Impact – Sept 18).
The software sets daily sets of questions for students to complete as their daily goal, which take approximately 5 minutes per day. The software then learns which areas of the specification are commonly answered correctly and incorrectly, and targets future questions on incorrect topics more frequently than those which were previously correct.
Additionally, this software provides valuable insight into pupils’ strengths and areas of development, to inform teaching and learning sequences and allow teaching to be responsive to the needs of learners.

Strong evidence shows that the more this software is used over a long period of time, the more impact it has. Parental support in encouraging their children to complete their daily goal is essential in supporting the use of this software to achieve maximum benefit for students.
Students will need to register for the software using the school details provided by their Science teacher. Registration must be done initially via the web, but apps can then be downloaded for Android and Apple stores once registered.
