How to start a new Baseline Assessment

My child's work programme is too challenging or too easy for them

If your child is finding the questions in Doodle too easy or too tricky, they may need to do a reassessment.

Baseline assessment will analyse your child's strengths and weaknesses to ensure that the work it set is at the right level for them.

All of your child's progress will be saved when selecting this option.

You can set your child's account into baseline assessment mode through the Parent Dashboard:

  1. Login to the Parent Dashboard

  2. Hover over Analyse and select Understanding

  3. Select your child's name down the left hand side and then click on the blue Start new baseline assessment button underneath

If your child is working well below their actual age, we recommend setting their DOB to reflect this as this will help ensure that the initial questions are more appropriate for their needs.

Encourage your child to work independently during the baseline assessment, even if they find things a little challenging. This is simply Doodle’s way of working out their strengths and weaknesses. Receiving help at this stage may cause their work to be incorrectly assessed, leading to the programme becoming too challenging.

You may find that your child's DoodleAge goes down, this will happen if the algorithm feels that your child needs to consolidate their learning on a few topics to ensure that those areas are fully embedded before moving them on to new learning, resulting in a stronger foundation for them to build their learning upon.
