QuestionIt is an educational app for children with autism or other significant language disorders that provides systematic instruction over multiple opportunities to teach children what kind of word answers which type of Wh question. Activities include sorting words by type of question they answer, answering questions about sentences, and answering questions about paragraphs. The app uses faded color cues and errorless learning techniques. The data manager scores number correct out of opportunities for each type of question in each level of each task. Data reports can be emailed from the app. The student is intermittently reinforced with a fireworks display for correct answers.
Added student select button allowing users to quickly switch between students
Ratings and Reviews
Excellent app for targeting ‘wh’ question understanding!
As a school SLP, I use this app a lot for working on understanding of ‘wh’ questions. It is the best app I know of to assess whether a student really understands the meaning of ‘wh’ questions. I do wish you could turn off or minimize the feedback a student gets after they make a response.
Great App for Middle School Students with Autism!
In my middle school classroom, the students enjoy using iPads for educational programs, earning as a reinforcer, and as a form of communication. One app in particular is fun, educational, and engaging for my students. The app is called Question It. The app is used to teach students to answer various “wh” questions with the aid of visual supports. The app has various levels of sorting that the student or teacher can choose from, ranging from one word to paragraphs. With the help of color cues that fade out as the student progresses through the app, this enables the student to learn by errorless teaching. The student has fireworks displays as reinforcement sporadically throughout the app when answering correctly. There is even a portion of the app that keeps data on the student’s progress on the number correct out of the total number of questions per activity level. This data can then be sent via email to the teacher.
This month, the app was put on my students’ ipads and they all enjoyed engaging in the educational app! My students struggle with differentiating between the various “wh” questions, but with this app the students are eager to work on this difficult skill for them while learning in a fun and errorless manner. I hope to see in the future the skill of answering comprehension questions generalized to use outside of this app and I would highly recommend this app to other teachers and parents.
My opinion and review of the app Question It?
The app Question It? is basically based on grammar. It helps a student learn their who, what, when, and wheres. This is wonderful for a 3rd grader or lower. Thank you for reading my review!
