Last year, as every year, we gathered feedback from teachers and received a “wish list” of ideas for the site. Towards the top of that list was the ability to have video comprehension questions graded automatically. This fall, we have that. Still, there are only so many alternative answers we can think up as answers to those comprehension questions.

Now, you have the ability to override answers that have already been autograded. Here is how you do it.

1. Go to the Student Results tab.

2. Find the video and click the orange Edit button.

 

3. To change a grade, click the drop down menu. You can choose to keep it as Incorrect, change it to Correct, or give Half Credit. You can then scroll down (not pictured) and leave any comments you wish (if you wish). Click the green Submit Grade button and you’re done. The changes have been applied.

 

We know this help alleviate any uncertainty your students may have about their results. We will, of course, continue to edit the question answers. Students and teachers can always give us feedback about this by clicking on the Question Feedback button.

USATestprep is pleased to announce three new additions to our family. Georgia subscribers can now access American Literature and Composition (CCGPS) and 9th Grade Literature and Composition (CCGPS). If you already subscribe to our English bundle you have full access to this.

Today also marks the appearance of “The Great Revealio.” Not only is this our newest game, but it is our first completely mobile- and tablet-friendly game. All users can find “Revealio” in the Games section right now. Give it a try!

USATestprep now has an Auto-Save feature built in to our system.

If your students are ever taking a test and the power goes out or if there is a sudden interruption in service, all of their progress will not be lost. Our system now saves the work a student is doing on a test every 10 seconds. If something unforeseen happens, students will receive this message when they log back on to USATestprep:

This should add a little peace of mind for you and your students, especially when storms are rolling through!

We’ve just added a few new features to USATestprep that you should know about.

We’ve just added lots of new avatars for teachers and students. Users can now choose from a devious but handsome Rat, a conniving T-Rex, two new Teacher options (but only for teachers), a Chicken Overlord, a hungry Caterpillar, and a beautiful Butterfly.

A few of these characters can even be seen in our brand new projector-based game, Time Bus. It will remind you of those days of playing board games as a kid, but now you can go it online using your LCD projector while reviewing important curriculum with your students. Be sure to check out the How-To video we have on this new game.

Finally, you’ve always been able to merge a student’s multiple accounts as an Account Admin. Now our “Student Merge Suggestor” will help you out. Clicking that option will enable you to merge many accounts for many students with a simple mouse click. Again, please check out our How-To Video on this new feature.

We know these tools will make using the site a little more colorful, fun, and easy. Let us know if you have any comments or questions.

USATestprep is thrilled to announce the launch of our Mobile site.

If you have a smartphone or tablet with an iOS or Android operating system, just direct it to m.usatestprep.com. There you will see the mobile companion for our website.

Simply type in your SchoolID, Username, and Password, and you’re in. You can access the Question of the Day and Vocabulary of the Day, and you can answer some Practice Questions from any of the subjects to which your school subscribes.

You can also play Class Party, a clicker-based review that is set up by teachers. This turns your mobile device into a remote clicker: you use it to answer questions in a classroom setting.

For more information about these new features you can check out the brief instructional videos by clicking on the How To videos on your Home page. Please let us know what you think about them!

When we created the site back in 1998, we always wanted to create a tool for teachers to help their students.  One way to encourage students was to introduce game play into the practice question environment.  Our first game was titled “Head of the Class.”  It involved students answering questions correctly to be able to advance through different levels of the game.  There was no arcade game play element, but it was a nice alternative to traditional practice.

Head of the Class

The rudimentary game was popular with students and teachers, so we began adding more games.  Both students and teachers let us know that future games needed more excitement, so we added arcade bonus rounds between questions.   If you notice, most game scoring is weighted heavier to question performance over bonus arcade play.  We didn’t want our high score boards to only reflect skilled gamers:  you must be skilled and do well on the questions.

Our latest game to be released, Arrrrrmagedddon, is a brand new type of two player game.  It may be played by two students at different computers.   So one player may make a move, then player two can respond next period, during lunch, or when he/she gets home.  Again, our goal was to create an engaging game with the #1 goal of getting students to participate in meaningful question practice.

Arrrrrrramageddon

We hope you and your students enjoy our games, and keep an eye out for more.  We have a lot of ideas on the way.
