Pre or post test for lang universe. lacks detail info.

If you are familiar with splingos language universe this assessment uses similar commands and would be an good assessment to pre and post test for that app. and the concepts targeted in that app. It's greatest flaw is that results are described only based on percentage correct of 1,2,3, and 4 key word directions. It ought to breakdown the results into specific concepts such as possessive-s, Locatives, syntax etc. You will need to make quick notes of performance on individual skills as you assess. if that major flaw were remedied it would be a much more useful assessment and I would give it 5 stars.

The other compliant I have have about splingos language universe as well as this app is that they need to more clearly picture what objects go with certain individuals so that possession is clearer for the child.

Too pricey for what it does

This app is was too pricey for what is included with it. For such a hefty price you would expect the questions to change with each assessment on the same child. It is the same questions at each level. My child completed level 4 100 percent in 2 tries as he memorised some of the answers.
