[prMac.com] Washington, District Of Columbia - Smarty Shortz LLC introduces Smarty Admissions Test Prep for iPad. Is your child ready for school? Are you trying to get into a competitive private school or the public school that your neighborhood feeds into? Is counting up to 20 good for a 3 year old? Is singing the A,B,C's where a 4 year old should be? Does your toddler know how to skip? Does he/she know where their knuckle is? All these are developmental indicators for the assessment of learning. These and many more lessons are used in screening tests designed to identify where young children are in their development and where they are placed academically within certain school programs or accepted into competitive academic establishments.
Smarty Admissions Test Prep is a preparation for standard evaluation tests administered by both private and public schools. The test is a form of evaluation used for ages 2 1/2 - 6 to determine where a student may be, developmentally, upon entering school. Traditionally there is no preparation for the test, this app serves as a guidance directly taken from teachers and students having both administered and taken the test. The test is traditionally administered with an instructor/teacher first doing a task and the student being asked to repeat, for this part, Instructive, a parent will need to assist with the app. Smarty Prep has an individual option to allow the child to practice most parts of the prep without a parent.
Smarty Admissions Test Prep takes the child through each tested assessment: Motor Skills/Physical Development (can he/she toss and catch a ball back and forth with one hand?), Grasping Concepts (what is pink vs what is red), Social Relations/Manners/Behavior (will your child have separation anxiety?) and Articulation/Language (does your child understand the ch vs the sh sounds?)
