The highly requested group scoring feature is included to collect scores in the flashcard activity for up to 4 children at a time. A group of students can collect data as they practice sounds in words and sentences. Version 2.0 also contains an improved matching activity that enables more opportunities for practice, especially for an individual student. Finally, the updates have bug fixes for choosing sound groups and for reversing cards to a previous sentence displayed in flashcards. Below are more details regarding the new features in the flashcard and matching activities:
What’s new in the flashcard activity?
The exciting new group scoring feature in version 2.0 allows you to collect data for individual students while working in a small group setting. Detailed scoring can be collected for up to 4 students at a time. It all begins with taking a photo or choosing a photo of each student in the activity, then tapping a student’s photo to collect data. If using a photo is not an option, student initials will be generated automatically following input of the student names. The group scoring feature maximizes practice for multiple students to collect scores for multiple productions on each card. This is especially helpful as students are typically grouped by the same sound or sounds in school therapy sessions. Notes can also be recorded during the flashcard activity via a long press on a student photo. Following the activity, detailed scores are organized by individual students to save in the app or to share.
What’s new in the matching activity?
The update to the matching activity in version 2.0 is designed to enable more opportunities for individual student practice. Two unmatched cards in the matching activity do not flip over to face side down until another card is tapped. This allows more time for student production of words in between choosing cards. Also, the matching card audio can be repeated by tapping a card face side up for the student to hear a given word as many times necessary before proceeding with the game. Detailed scores for a given sound group are now displayed during the matching activity to parallel the scores displayed at the conclusion of the game. This shows how an individual student is performing for each sound group during the activity.
