The Doodle programmes are a great tool to support intervention in schools!

Doodle is adaptive

When a child first starts using Doodle, our clever algorithm, Proxima™, will ask them a series of questions to determine their current level and confidence - this is baseline assessment. This helps Doodle to create them a unique work programme tailored to their individual strengths and weaknesses. You can therefore feel confident that your students are working on a work programme that is just right for them. Doodle will address any misconceptions in their understanding by going back and revisiting previous learning and will only move them on to new learning when it identifies that they are ready for it.

Students can work on their personalised work programmes (their x-a-day) and save questions as Tricky to be discussed with/supported by the member of staff.


You can create multiple classes and children can be assigned to many different classes. These means you can separate out any students who are in an intervention group. This can be done by following the steps here. This is really useful to help you with setting targeted assignments for these students.


Targeted Assignments could be assigned for the intervention session, and all of the learners could go through these independently or as a group together. If an Assignment is set from the Teacher Dashboard, then students can receive support on the questions if needed, which won’t affect their personalised programmes - just like the Tricky Questions. For information on how to set Assignments, please see here.

In order to identify students' areas of weakness, teachers can head to Work programmes > View understanding. Here they can view students’ gaps and plan their intervention session. You can either look at an overview of their understanding on the students page, or select the age related expectations (ARE) view.
