Create your own exercises

You can make spelling exercises to support literacy activities, curriculum topics or personalised learning. With the new teacher interface, text lists and letter rules can be merged to create new exercises containing relevant topic words and tasks.

Choose individual options

Each user has their own options and settings that can be controlled using the editor, including the degree of hint support provided during exercises. Users interact with the program either by using the keyboard or by clicking letters with the mouse.

Monitoring progress

Teachers now have the opportunity to see detailed tracking of user progress. Reports showing exactly where users are struggling are generated so that activities can then be structured to provide the highest learning impact.
