Micro Questions Upgrade

Posted by on in EzyEconomics

Following the upgrade to our macro questions back at Christmas, we are excited to be upgrading all of our micro questions as well!

As time has passed since we first launched the EzyEconomics courses, we have developed our functionality. In particular, we have created our own question functionality which allows us a lot of flexibility to ask different question formats. It also makes questions prettier and clearer for students to understand.

Towards the end of August, we will publish all of these new-format questions.

What does this mean for our learning data?

All previous assessment outcomes will be retained. This means that reports like the Gradebook will be unaffected. Students will notice no difference to their data.

However, some of the more advanced reports available to teachers, including student learning analysis, will not contain data for attempts at the 'old-format' questions. All attempts from the end of August onwards at these new questions will be recorded. If you have any questions about this, please get in contact with us!

A huge thank you to all of the schools who have supported us thus far. We are looking forward to yet another record-breaking year of usage within EzyEconomics and the production and release of ever more (and ever better) resources!

Best wishes,

The EzyEconomics Team

If the objective is to improve performance against target grade it is worth reflecting on just how this might be achieved.

Economics Year 13 revision Day 29 - Development Economics

Posted by on in EzyEconomics

On day 29 of the Year 13 Recap we review the field of macroeconomics titled development economics.

Development economics is a branch of economics established to evaluate the link between growth and development. This is because standard economic theory, up to that point, had always assumed that higher levels of growth would translate into improved living standards and put a country on a strong development path.

Economics Year 13 revision Day 28 - Economic Integration

Posted by on in EzyEconomics

On day 28 of the Year 13 Recap we review the concept of economic integration and discuss the different levels in which economic integration can come in.

Economic integration describes how countries take active steps to increase the amount of trade between themselves and the rest of the world. There are lots of competing terms that you need to be comfortable with such as a customs union, free trade agreement and single market.
