We find that all our families are using EdPlace for different reasons so it is difficult for us to set rigid guidelines on how often children should log in or how many activities they should complete. We recommend completing 10 or more activities per day for students who are home-educated.
Having said that, our approach is very much little and often. So depending on your child's age and assuming that they are working on the three subjects of maths, science and English, we would suggest that approximately 1-2 activities per day would be a healthy number alongside school to achieve great progress over the course of an academic year.
Each activity has 10 questions, our estimation for the normal length of time for such an activity would be approximately 10 minutes (assuming that the Introduction is read or watched in full) - feeding into our preferred 'little and often' practice style.
We regularly assess the effectiveness of EdPlace for students and every year we produce an impact report on progress based on all our student's data. One of the main themes that frequently comes up is that consistently using EdPlace over the course of the academic year is particularly favourable for progress!
