Engagement Is the product stimulating, entertaining, and engrossing? Will kids want to return? 3

A fun design, colorful graphics, and some humorous answer options make these straightforward quizzes more engaging than pencil-and-paper worksheets. 

Pedagogy Is learning content seamlessly baked-in, and do kids build conceptual understanding? Is the product adaptable and empowering? Will skills transfer? 2

The quizzes are effective practice tools, but they focus on memorization and don't include an instructional component. Feedback for incorrect answers doesn't clearly explain why the answers were incorrect. 

Support Does the product take into account learners of varying abilities, skill levels, and learning styles? Does it address both struggling and advanced students? 3

Instructions and an intuitive design help kids get started and move through the quizzes. The developer's website offers an opportunity for teachers to learn how to create their own mobile-app quizzes.

How Can Teachers Use It?

Using Geometry Pro! in the classroom is easy. Tap a quiz to determine its content, and choose one that relates to an upcoming unit. Have kids individually complete the quiz as a pre-assessment and discuss the results. Did they earn a star? If so, what color star? The app doesn't accommodate multiple users, so keep a record of kids' scores. After teaching the unit, and before a formal exam, have kids complete the same quiz and compare the results.

What's It Like?

At the Geometry Pro! homepage, kids choose from 10 multiple-choice quizzes, which they can complete in any order. Each 10-question quiz covers a different geometry topic. Quizzes are scored, and kids get feedback for incorrect answers. In most cases, however, the feedback simply gives the correct answer. Some answer choices are silly, which can be fun and engaging. When kids complete a quiz, they earn a star.

Is It Good For Learning?

Kids can test their knowledge of geometry concepts, including angle calculations; circumference, area, and diameter of circles; the Pythagorean theorem; volume; and more. The quizzes are decent practice tools, but an instructional component is lacking, and there's no variety in the style of questions -- they're all multiple-choice. Kids could benefit from more constructive feedback and some variety in the question styles -- such as drag-and-drop or fill-in-the-blank -- that would promote higher-order thinking.
