He really enjoyed playing the games and doing the lessons, but I had to remind him to go all the way to the STOP sign. Otherwise, he'd complete a game and stop then, and he wouldn't get credit for having completed. The actually learning lessons are intermixed with fun little games that provide a nice break. I wish there was a way to "rewind" so that he could replay a portion if needed, but overall I really like the interface.
I also wish there was a placement for spelling, since I know spelling is weak. I would like to see more done on the spelling side as that would really benefit us greatly. It is easy to add your own words and create your own quizzes and such.
I like this feature because I can customize it to fit our needs easily.
Overall, we really like this program. I like that he can get in his computer time with a quality educational program, he likes that it is fun and entertaining. I call that a win/win for both of us! We will definitely continue using this!
Does K5 Learning Pass My 4 Ingredient Test?
1.) Customization: Is it easily adaptable? Can we customize it to fit “us?” Can we modify or set our own schedule? Can we take breaks, jump ahead, or flat out skip?
My using the placement tests, your child's education will be customized based off their test. The program incorporates games in it that act like breaks. You need to get to the STOP for progress to be saved. You can't skip as it goes in the order it sees fit.
You can have up to 4 students per account, K-5th. there are no hidden fees.
3.) Attention span: Is it boring? Is it engaging? Is it varied enough for ADHD? Does it last too long?
It's very well designed for ADHD given the game breaks and overall presentation. It's fun, colorful, and entertaining, but not distracting.
4.) Does it tie into other things we already have.
