The Two Sides of the App

The Teach Me side: short, relatively funny poems that teach the definitions and use the words in context. Twelfth grade words taught with tenth, seventh, and third grade humor. What could be better?

The Test Me side: 20-question tests with three types of questions: Fill-in-the-blank, Definitions, and Finish-the-Poem.

The New Menu Button

Find everything you need with a tap.


TEACH ME

Teach Me Slider No Arrows

All Words

You’ll be taught and tested randomly on every word in the app. By the time you’ve learned them all, you’ll be starving to buy more word sets.

Difficult Words

You’ll be taught and tested first on all the words you’ve marked “Difficult” followed by the words that make you feel slightly less clueless.

Playlist

Now you can create your own playlist of as many hand-picked words as you like. A great feature for teachers who want their students focused on all the same words.

Auto Play

Auto Play lets you listen to the rhymes without having to interact with the app.

Repeat the Rhymes

Set the app to play each rhyme once, twice, or three times before it advances to the next one.

Teach Me

Part of Speech and Pronunciation

Every word is followed by its part of speech and easy-to-say phonetic pronunciations. Anybody can sound these out!

 

The Definitions Are in Bold

Words in bold are easy-to-understand definitions, synonyms, and shades of meaning. Much simpler than a dictionary with all its confusiating wordisms!

Teach Me Antithesis

The Audio Button

Hit the audio button, turn up the sound, and let voice actors do the reading for you. The greatest possible feature for lazy people!

 

REMEMBER THIS Clues!

REMEMBER THIS clues are mnemonics designed to help you remember the definitions forever. They’re the keys to locking the definitions into your memory. Fast. Pay attention to these, and in no time you can put the app down and move on to other important things. Like washing my car.

TEST ME

Time Me

An optional timer lets you apply a little pressure during tests. During TIMED tests, pages will advance quickly after you’ve chosen one answer, correct or incorrect.

 

Audio Comments

Voice Actors occasionally compliment and insult your answer choices. Don’t worry, the app gives you the control to turn off these voices in your head.

The EASY and DIFFICULT Buttons

If the correct answer is a word you already know, mark it Easy and it won’t appear in future Teach Me or Test Me cycles. Smarty Pants.

If the correct answer is a word that’s really tough for you, mark it Difficult. You can choose to be taught or tested on “Difficult” words before all others.

These buttons also appear on Teach Me Screens.

Your Current Test Score

Keep track of whether you’re a vocabulary star or a bit of a slacker.

The Teach Me Button

Jodi’s favorite feature: During an UNTIMED test, when you choose an incorrect answer, the TEACH ME button with appear. Tap that, and you’ll flip to the other side of the app to learn the word you should have chosen. Look at that: learning something right in the middle of a test!

Return to Test Button

After learning the correct answer, you can go right back to the test you were taking.

PLAYLIST

Playlist

Now you can create your own SAT Word Slam Playlist! Fill it with as many words as you’d like to concentrate on. To be tested on your Playlist words, you’ll need a minimum of 20 words in the Playlist folder.

A great feature for teachers who want their students focused on all the same words.

  • Tap a word in the index to add it to your playlist.
  • Swipe to delete individual words from the playlist, or tap CLEAR ALL for a clean slate.

Test Results

Scroll through all your test results and remind yourself of what a long and painfu… um… helpful trip it’s been.

Let’s pretend this never happened

Not happy with how it’s been going?? You can Clear Test Results with a tap. Or swipe over an individual score, and a red Delete button will appear! Revisionist history, sweet!


INDEX

SAT Word Slam Index

The Index keeps track of what’s what

Words in red have been marked “Difficult.” Words in green have been marked “Easy.” Words in black remain “Medium” difficulty by default.

Your Percentage

Shows how well you’ve tested on each word. If a percentage is embarrassingly low, tell people your little sister stole your iPhone and took tests behind your back.

Definition Page

Tap a word in the index, and you’ll be taken to that word’s Definition Page. Shows part of speech, pronunciation, definitions, and Remember This clue. Hit the Play button, and listen to the rhyme.

That’s it! That’s the SAT Word Slam App!

Haplessly enjoyable. Brilliantly obsequious. Egregiously simple!

(If you think I used any of those words correctly, you need the app more than I thought.)
