Who is making Get My Grades?
Get My Grades has been developed by a team of teachers, developers, subject experts and other professionals. The co-founders, John and Samantha Nichols, thought of the idea a few years ago whilst John was a private tutor with too many clients and too little time.
Get My Grades is a way to deliver engaging content in a clear and informative manner whilst also encouraging students to practise effectively – using the same techniques and strategies that are used by the best teachers and tutors. The data collected and presented by the system helps students or teachers establish what has been learnt effectively and to make better decisions about what students should do next to make the most progress.
John is also a former teacher and instantly saw the benefit of a system that could automatically collect data, provide learning resources and assess students in schools. So, from the outset, Get My Grades has been designed with the needs of teachers and schools in mind, with contributions from a number of current teachers into both our content and the functions of the platform.
