Gojimo: A Top App for Test Prep
Summary : Test Prep Made Convenient
Gojimo is a test prep app that provides users with hundreds of practice quizzes for a variety of standardized assessments including the ACT, AP, SAT, and college-level undergraduate tests among others. After a brief tutorial about the app, users can click the “Home” button that is located under the “Lined” dropdown menu on the top right of the screen. Users then select the assessment of interest, and Gojimo downloads a practice test to their iPad. Users then tap on the downloaded test, select either the random test or specific topic for the test, and then begin the test. In the test, users are presented with multiple-choice questions. When users select an answer, they are immediately provided an explanation, regardless if they answered correctly or incorrectly. After completing all the questions, users are provided a final score, which they can share over social media or choose to review the quiz’s questions. Users can also activate additional quiz options by tapping the “Lined” button and selecting “Quiz Settings,” which allows them to control the amount of questions per quiz, sound options, if explanation are provided with answers, and timer settings.
Please Note: Additional quizzes may be accessed via in-app purchases. Teachers can also create classes and administer assignments if their school uses Gojimo.
- As a pre-assessment or review, teachers can have students complete a quiz about a specific subject in this app. After students complete the quiz, teachers can have students take a screenshot of their results report and email them that screenshot. Teachers can use this data to inform their future instruction.
- Following students completing a quiz as a pre-assessment or review, teachers can ask students: (1) What was difficult about this quiz? (2) What did you already know that was assessed by this quiz? (3) If you were going to study for this quiz, what would you study? Students can respond to these questions either in writing or orally. If students respond in writing, they can type their responses using the UX Write, Office Offline, or WPS Office app. They can then email their responses to their teacher.
- Teachers can assign a group of students the responsibility of preparing their classmates for a quiz in this app. The group will then have to take the quiz in order to preview the content. Next, students can create a presentation, skit, or activity to prepare their classmates for the quiz. The presentation, skit, or activity can summarize the quiz’s content and highlight important information that will be on it. After the group’s presentation, skit, or activity, they can field any remaining questions their classmates may have. Afterwards, the group should instruct their classmates to take the quiz and then send a screenshot of their results to their teacher.
- After students become familiar with the questions asked by this app, teachers can have students write additional multiple-choice questions with explanations for a specific topic. The quiz questions can been written using an Office app and emailed to the teacher. The teacher can then post them to a class website as an online quiz.
