Admission to Kindergarten Harder than to Harvard? iPad App to the Rescue

in Education (E)

[] New York, New York - The new Qwizful HD for iPad is now available on the App Store. The game-like educational app offers free practice test samples for young children (pre-kindergarten-2nd grade), thus helping boost their confidence as they are asked to take formal assessments toward admission to elementary school.

"Qwizful HD is not a typical basic educational app, of the kind one finds in the App Store, nor is it an IQ test for kids." said Eylon Javetz, founder of Qwizful. "Qwizful HD goes beyond simple alphabet and math exercises to bring a rich mix of content across a broad spectrum of key topics, presented in meticulously-designed templates. It is about boosting retention across a variety of challenges through playful learning. We expect the Holiday Wiz Quiz - The Qwizful Special Christmas Edition to become available on the App Store within a few days" Added Mr. Javetz.

The new App was built to help parents engage their children in effective yet fun learning toward taking cognitive ability tests (i.e. OLSAT, BSRA, SAT, ITBS, CogAT, TAKS, FCAT, STAR etc.) that are often required for admission to elementary school. Consequently, young children can now become familiar with the multiple choice test format through a user-friendly easy-to-follow interface.

In order to boost retention, Qwizful HD features fun stimulating exercises, memorable children's themes and audio narration. The delightful characters and cheerful feedback make the quizzes more appealing to young minds, as they explore the amusing challenges.

The educational app encompasses key topics, from analogies and sequencing, through pictorial reasoning and vocabulary to math and time telling.

Qwizful HD for iPad and Qwizful: Prep Quiz your Wiz Kids for iPhone offer free prep tests for kids for trial, with additional practice tests for children accessible using the in-app purchase option. The playful app is offered at a competitive price, particularly as compared to prep tests packages toward the gifted and talented test and other cognitive ability assessment processes.
