Recommended Topics Explained
The Blutick system automatically suggests maths topics appropriate to the information we have about your learner.
We recommend suitable tasks based on their previous work. When a learner logs in to Blutick, the next recommended task appears on their Home page, labelled “Your Next Topic”.
The recommendations will adjust themselves to the age, ability level and experience of each learner. If a set topic is too easy or too hard, the learner can complete a more appropriate topic, and the system will adjust future recommendations accordingly.
How does Blutick decide which topics to suggest on their Home page?
Firstly, a learner’s Home page always shows any tasks they have been set as a top priority. Links to set tasks are displayed alongside the name of the teacher, tutor, or parent who set them.

If they have no incomplete tasks, then the Home page will suggest the next topic in their Revision Schedule.
If they do not have a Revision Schedule, then the Home page will suggest the next topic in their Course.
Finally, if they are not on a Course, the Home page will suggest a topic based on their age.
How do I make the recommended topics right for my learner’s age?
The default initial topic suggestions are appropriate to the UK curriculum for Year Seven students (aged 11-12).
In order to personalise suggested topics to a particular learner’s age, they should make sure their profile has their correct date of birth. Update this if necessary on the learner’s profile page. Enter a date of birth in the format DD/MM/YYYY.
