Great qualitative data but app needs improving

Since the last update, some of the pictures are so tiny that it's very difficult for students to see the actions (e.g. crying). Also, the fact that some of the items are big and small even when size is not being tested can incorrectly cue the student. For example, 'who's is sitting?': a big man sitting versus a small man jumping - they are drawn to the size cue of the larger picture which skews the results. The size of the pictures should be identical unless the instruction specifically involves size. Please fix!

Good app, but missing normative data

Great app! Is obviously missing normative data though to support interpretation of the results. This information can be easily found in literature but it would be a lot more efficient and convenient if it was automatically a part of the app.
