Test-Prep Software Designed for the Classroom
Incredible Tutor System, by Sleek Systems, is a new software application
designed to meet the increasing needs of students, teachers, and
administrators to prepare for standardized achievement tests.
The programs allow students to familiarize themselves with exam
format and to practice their test-taking abilities in a variety
of subject areas through great quantities of sample questions.
Teachers will need to chooses the lessons for younger students
(grades 1-5) while older students can work on their own.
Each student creates a personal account within the program that
tracks, in great detail, his or her progress in different subject
areas and success in answering specific types of questions. Because
each student, or pair of students, needs access to a computer
to use the software, the Incredible Tutor system could be used
on a rotating basis in classrooms equipped with one or more computers,
as well as in smaller after-school and tutoring programs.
The Incredible Tutor School Version titles include Math, Reading,
Spanish Reading, and Writing, for grades 1-2, 3-5, 6-8 and High
School, plus Algebra and Biology titles. Each title costs $40-60
per computer for up to 50 computers or $2,000-3,000 for a site
license. Sleek Systems also offers software designed for administrators
to process the data collected by Incredible Tutor and sells home-use
versions of the software. For more information, contact Sleek
Systems by telephone at 1-800-337-5335 or online at www.sleek.com.
