Revision sessions boost student confidence and create better assessment outcomes, all while saving teachers valuable time.

Using Atomi’s extensive bank of curriculum-specific resources, teachers can select which content to cover—from whole topics to individual lessons; the question types—from multiple choice to extended response; and the length of time they want their students to revise.

Use revision sessions for anything from practice exams and pop quizzes to diagnostic assessments and end-of-topic tests.


How to create a revision session from a subject or topic page

Create a revision session from any subject or topic page by clicking Create revision; this will open the revision session creation form, where you can customise the topics, question types and session length.

Note: Creating a revision session from a subject page will automatically select all topics. Creating a revision session from a topic page will select only that topic by default.
