FAQs

How does Studiosity work?

There are two core services inside Studiosity.

The Connect Live service is for when students think, "It's Sunday at 6pm, and I need help right now!" A student formulates their own question, then connects with one of our subject specialists in the interactive online classroom and works through the question - with chat, collaborative whiteboard, and file sharing tools. Because timely feedback drives confidence and perseverance. 

The Writing Feedback service is for when students think, "I've  gone as far as I can on this draft, now I don't know how to improve it." This service lets a student upload a draft written assignment and receive formative feedback from an English language specialist in less than 24 hours. The feedback is based on critical, core writing skills, such as spelling/grammar, structure, and choice of language. It helps students think about where they might focus their attention and add more thought.

How Studiosity works for students:

What is the benefit for teachers?

Teachers know that half of a child's school learning is hidden, "invisible," after hours when they study alone at night. 

But in 2019, for teachers and schools who are driven by each student's personal learning journey and success, who want to be able to personalise learning with timely feedback and data, 'invisible' is no longer good enough. 

Even the most skilled classroom teachers can't see how every student coped with the previous night's homework, their process for completing an assignment or writing a draft. Some students are more proactive than others, some are quiet, and a 90-minute class isn't enough to address the individual needs of 25 students whilst also progressing the curriculum.

With Studiosity, those invisible moments of student frustration are uncovered, and supported. 

What is the evidence for timely, after-hours study help?

Immediate study support impacts a student’s academic self-efficacy and future learning progression. A literature review by Dr Gerard Calnin (2017) pinpoints driving forces on a student's performance -  including timely, regular feedback from "a more knowledgeable other"  (see the graphic below). It identifies that immediate, positive support experiences assist progression towards goals, and negative experiences, such as the inability to complete tasks, can throw a student back in their learning progress. This can be avoided with timely intervention and formative feedback that helps them to succeed and progress towards their academic goals. 

With Studiosity, timely, personalised feedback can finally be delivered in practice, at scale.

What teacher reporting is available?

Reporting is flexible to suit your school’s objectives and strategy. Depending on your school’s setup, teachers can receive summary data or a complete list of students using Studiosity, their questions, date/time of enquiry, and their final comment about the help received. Speak to your school’s Studiosity Client Partnership Manager about setting up and receiving reports.

How do you know it works?

Research conducted at several universities showed that Studiosity improved grade point average as well as self-efficacy.

What do students see?

In the Connect Live classroom, students have a view of a typed chat interface, and an interactive whiteboard with multiple tabs available to move between.
When downloading their file from the Writing Feedback service, the student sees their original submission details, a comprehensive ‘Feedback Summary’ which contains the Subject Specialist’s overall comments regarding the draft, and in-line commentary highlighting specific examples within the student’s work that they can improve.

After-hours study support

The kind of service that Studiosity provides allows students to take those questions online and to be able to find their own answers. Finding your own answer is a crucial part of learning and it’s a principle of Studiosity that the specialists assist students to find the best way to find the correct way, the correct answer. Rather than teaching the students or telling the student what the answer might be.

Principal Simon Dash from Xavier Catholic College in Hervey Bay talks at the CaSPA 2018 conference on how Studiosity helps their students feel better prepared and more confident by providing after-hours study help.

How Studiosity helps K-12 students and teachers

Because the service is there 24/7 for the students, the reality is they’re only doing their homework and assignments and any of the assessment work outside of school hours, so it’s really nice to know they have that port of call 24/7 to be able to touch base with someone who is an expert in their field to guide them along the way.”
