Is It Any Good?

A+Click quizzes kids quickly and efficiently with interesting logical challenges, but it's a bit rough in the usability department. The good: menu and question images are catchy and clear, and a spare design keeps kids focused on the question at hand. Although many questions cover basic skills, most have some sort of additional challenge like overlapping shapes, comparisons, or tricky wording. One applied question asks younger kids to determine larger sections of a slice of cantaloupe, while another, for high schoolers, requests the area of an hourglass-shape lake given measurements on an overlaid grid. Olympiad-level questions can be really thought-provoking: "Make 33 by using three 3s and any math operators. How many times do you use the plus sign (+) in the expression?" Whew!

With such great potential, it's too bad that statistics and a 20-questions-in-a-row challenge board are hard to find, and basic navigation is cryptic (select Cancel to continue? For real?). Although content is generally quite impressive, we found at least one mistake. It would be nice if younger kids had two chances to get it right, and a feature to review concepts before quizzes would be especially awesome.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
