Level Up Aims to Address a Common Challenge in Exam Preparation

Studying for certification exams can be a daunting task, often leading to discouragement among learners. Research indicates that practice quizzes featuring questions that are either too easy or too hard can significantly impact a student's motivation to study. Pocket Prep understands this challenge and is proud to introduce Level Up as the solution.

Our Level Up quiz mode introduces an exciting and interactive game that allows users to test their knowledge. As users advance through the levels, the questions become progressively more challenging, providing a consistent and motivating learning experience. In order to progress to the next level, users must answer 85% of the questions correctly. This feature keeps learners engaged and continuously encourages them to enhance their understanding.

Ways to incorporate Level Up in your class:

  1. Assess how a group of students do on the same set of questions through a a series of Level Up quizzes. For example, ask your students to “complete levels 1-4 in subject X”.

  2. Challenge your students in-class to see who can complete the most levels, within a specific subject, in 15 minutes.

  3. Level 1 should be easy - how many questions are your students getting right in a specific subject?

After completing a Level Up quiz, you can view all exam questions in the Content tab. Filter by Subject to see questions answered in a specific subject. Sort questions by Answered or % Correct to gauge student performance. Click on any question for more details.

To view results of a specific student's Level Up quiz (or any other quiz), follow these steps:

1. Go to the Stats tab and select the student from the roster.

2. Navigate to their Study Activity area.

3. Choose the quiz that you want to view.

4. The quiz questions the student answered will appear on the right side of the screen. You can also click any of the questions to get a more detailed view.
