Seneca Premium focuses on enhancing students' outcome by supporting students with 800+ additional Premium courses and Seneca's Premium Learning Tools. Senior and Middle Leaders are able to gain a better understanding of Seneca's impact with student-level and school-level data reports.

Benefits for Students

Our Premium Learning Tools help students get the most out of the Seneca courses. The Learning Tools harness the latest cognitive science and AI to focus students on the learning that will make the largest impact on their achievement.

We offer two Premium Learning Tools to students:

  1. Smart Learning Mode uses our smart algorithm, insights from cognitive neuroscience & AI to generate recommendations of which topic students should study at precisely the right time to maximise their learning.
  2. Wrong Answer Mode encourages students to focus on the areas of the curriculum they find most challenging. Students learning in Wrong Answer Mode are given a series of questions they've struggled with in the past. Questions are automatically corrected to help students plug knowledge gaps and boost their grades.

Premium Courses

On top of our Premium learning tools, Premium offers 800+ Premium courses for students. These are exclusive courses with new content, memory techniques, and questions. Some examples of our Premium content are:

Benefits for Schools

Seneca Premium supports schools with enhanced data integrity, access to whole-school reporting and MIS integrations.

MIS Integrations

Seneca's MIS integrations will make setting up and working with Seneca Premium super easy for your staff and pupils.

Seneca will link directly to your MIS (e.g. SIMS, Arbor, Progresso, etc.) to pull up-to-date class lists through to Seneca. All classes will be set up with the correct students and any changes in class lists will appear when Seneca syncs overnight.

The MIS integration will reduce admin time for all teachers but the MIS integration will be particularly useful in helping staff who find using technology more challenging as everything is set up for them!

Seneca Leadership Data

Our data team will provide you with regular reports on student engagement across the school. The reports will allow you to filter data to understand what's going on across the subjects and year groups in your school.

Half termly whole school reports will give your senior leaders the oversight they need to drive engagement and share best practice across the school.

Usage reports allow schools to see school wide data covering everything from the number of assignments set within the school to which department is setting the most assignments and which courses are used the most as well as number of active students and learning time.

Premium teachers also have access to additional features designed to boost student's learning and identify usage across the school.

Exam Questions Only

Exam Questions only assignments with thousands of free text, AI marked exam questions written by examiners and teachers, the perfect way to get your students exam ready!

These allow you to set up to 10 free-text questions in a row for students to complete. This adds a huge new dimension to work on Seneca, allowing students to deploy elaboration alongside the standard Seneca content built on retrieval practice and interleaving.

Premium teachers can also set unlimited standard Seneca assignments with 3 exam questions attached.

Progress Reports

Whole school reports allow you to view and track data and progress across the school. This breaks whole school usage down by subjects using Seneca, individual students, teachers, and classes, and will show data by target groups such as Pupil Premium, gender, and SEN. This is the most granular level of data accessible with Seneca, covering assignment completion, homework scores, and study time (independent and assignment-led) - a great way to track usage across the school and identify areas for improvement or implementing Seneca further.
