Rating: (1-5)

Strong Points: It allows children to work at their own speed.  Common words in which a child spelled wrong or had trouble with appeared more frequently to practice their spelling on the words in which they needed help with.
Weak Points: Did not know how to change levels in the program.  The program seemed to only have one learning level but it offered more then one level.  There was no option to quit a section if you wanted to stop in the middle.  There should be an alternative button to quit the section early)
