Interactive structure holds kids' interest. They can host online study groups to answer questions and discuss responses, which provides additional learning resources and an incentive to entice friends to use the site.
Kids get to see a helpful rationale for why each response was right or wrong. The site's tone can feel a bit clinical, but completed goals are acknowledged with achievement badges, and the feedback is invaluable.
Private tutoring sessions offered through the site cost extra. However, students can continue learning after their tests are done with Learnist, a cool Pinterest-type education site Grockit launched in 2012.
