Online assignment submission and extension activities

Learners can easily complete and submit all of their unit assessments online using 'The Sport Brain'. Training tasks can be used to support lesson delivery or as homework activities that support knowledge acquisition.

Smart, simple and efficient online marking with our simple interface

Reduce marking time whilst still providing detailed and constructive feedback. Grading criteria buttons and customisable comment boxes can all be annotated onto the learner work with a simple click of a button.

Monitor learner progress, achievement and marking load

The Sport Brain's simple colour coded system immediately informs users when work has been started, submitted and assessed. Teachers can quickly review cohort assessment submission and engagement.

Full integration of Internal Verification, Lead IV and Standards Verifier processes

Department verifiers are able to internally verify assignment briefs and assessment decisions using Edexcel approved documentation. Lead IVs are able to review the verification process and provide samples to standards verifiers for review.

A well designed modern interface
