Case study • The Learning Edge had created an mobile application to help students with SAT prep • They believe that since students use mobile devices more, this will help the students want to study • The app approaches the SAT as if it were a game to make the test seem more fun and so students are more compelled to study for it
Case study • The app can either be used solo or head to head • The head to head mode created competition and makes the user feel compelled to try harder to get the correct answer • The more they play the more they are exposed to SAT questions and the harder they try the higher their SAT scores are.
Case study • A great deal of care and effort was put into crafting questions that are appropriate both intellectually and conceptually • The realistic test questions greatly enhance the quality of the app • One of the most valuable features of this app is that the practice questions are very close approximations of what students will encounter on the real thing
