Spelling Software for Schools
The SpellQuizzer spelling software is ideal for use in both individual classroom computer stations as
well as in a school’s computer lab. SpellQuizzer can be tailored to complement any spelling curriculum.
SpellQuizzer practices one-on-one with the student quizzing them on their spelling words. Teachers can
create custom spelling lists for their classes as well as individual lists for students needing extra
practice on their problem words.

Using SpellQuizzer in the classroom
Teachers can input their weekly spelling lists into SpellQuizzer making sound recordings of the
individual words with a PC microphone. Just about any PC microphone will work (including inexpensive
models selling for less than $10 in department stores). For each word in a spelling list the teacher
records the word using it in a sentence. If a microphone is not available, the teacher can enter a
reminder phrase for each word to prompt the student (for example, the reminder phrase for the word
“house” might be “A building a family lives in.”).

Once a spelling list has been created on the computer, the students can take turns using SpellQuizzer to
practice their spelling words. If sound recordings were made for the words then the student would wear
headphones. SpellQuizzer quizzes each student on the words in their list by playing the sound recording
for each spelling word and/or displaying the word’s reminder phrase. Mistakes are corrected by playing
an amusing sound and displaying the correct spelling. Once the student has completed the list, the
software prompts them to re-try any words they missed.

Using SpellQuizzer in a computer lab
SpellQuizzer can be used in a computer lab in the same way it is used in the classroom. Multiple
spelling lists can be stored in the SpellQuizzer database to accommodate multiple classes and
curriculums. The database can be stored at a network location all the computers in the lab can
access. This way you need only create one central database and don’t need to duplicate spelling lists
for use on more than one computer. The SpellQuizzer database is a single file that can easily be backed up.
Sharing spelling lists with home users
Students can practice at home with SpellQuizzer if their parents have purchased a home license for
SpellQuizzer. Teachers can create export files of the lists they create and make them available to
parents either via download from a web site or by sending them as email attachments. Home users can
then import the list or lists from the exported file and have both the spelling lists and sound
recordings for use in their copy of SpellQuizzer.
Site licenses for schools are available at discounted volume rates. The price for a school site license
varies depending on how many computers the software will be installed on.
