Flexibility and control
You decide to train using two or three choices and whether to use illustrations or photographs. Four examples of each item aid in generalizing the concept. At the end of each lesson, a summary of the student’s performance is presented, allowing you to quickly review progress and ensure accountability.
This activity automatically assesses a student’s knowledge of early categories and delivers highly individualized training. Based on a student’s responses, the program moves among three training levels, each with a different amount of instructional support.
• Magnet Match asks students to match an item at the top of the screen with one of the four items at the bottom.
• Pick-a-Pair presents five pairs of items and asks students to find the pair from the same category.
