Why Studiosity? Providing a well-rounded education for all students was and is a priority for Principal Simon Dash. When he joined Xavier College in 2017 (with a low SES population of 91) there was a clear need to boost the academic outcomes for students. Student aptitude was high, but their background, location and resources were limited, which meant that partnering with an online 24/7 service like Studiosity, helped alleviate those setbacks. As Simon said, 'Equitable access to substantial support mechanisms is really important for student success'.
“The service that Studiosity provides works really well and when you consider the equity of access it provides to students that may be disadvantaged, and the benefits are incredibly valuable. The knowledge it provides staff is insightful . The reporting allows teachers to evaluate if students understand a concept or not and whether they need to reteach which is incredibly interactive. We are now in a place where students don't have the excuse that 'they didn't understand ' because they should be able to show they went online to Studiosity to get help. The uptake from both students and teachers has been huge."
