Teacher Tools

Question Bank

As a teacher, you have access to all of Siyavula’s questions in our question bank, making it much easier for you to find questions on a particular topic.
The question bank orders questions by subject, grade, topic, and difficulty level. You can both view and do any of the questions in our question bank.


You are free to use the Siyavula textbooks, which you can find by clicking on Textbooks on the navigation bar. Our Grade 8 - 12 Mathematics and Grade 10 - 12 Physical Sciences textbooks contain interactive questions that learners can do. These are marked immediately, and can be used in the classroom for you to see if learners understand a concept you're teaching.


Siyavula’s assignment-setting feature allows you to choose the questions you’d like your learners to practise. You can use them for homework, revision, or assignments and don’t need to create your own content. Assignments are available only to teachers on our Premium or Explorer packages.


The Siyavula reports give teachers immediate, detailed information on how their learners are practising, and how they’ve done in a set assignment. The reports can be viewed online on the Siyavula website and downloaded as Excel spreadsheets.

Find out more about our reports here:
Summary practice reports: these show what your learners have been practising
Question reports: these show how your learners have done on a particular question (available only to teachers on our Premium and Explorer packages)
Assignment reports: these show how your learners have done on an assignment you have set
School activity reports: this shows practice activity for a whole school or department, by grade and learner (available only to teachers on our Premium package)


If you are on our Premium package, you can create class leaderboards for a class or across classes, to encourage a sense of competition among your learners. Find out here how to create a class leaderboard.

Parent Accounts

You can encourage parents to track their child's progress by creating a parent account on Siyavula, and linking themselves to their child's account. This will give them an overview of their child's practice history and progress.

Download our Ways that work document for details on how you can use Siyavula's teacher tools to support your teaching.
