Students accumulate points as they read and learn vocabulary, and bonus rounds encourage them to keep playing.
Vocabulary Points Guide
Students receive a base of:
- 2 points for vocab words answered in image mode
- 3 points for vocab words answered in synonym mode
- 5 points for vocab words answered in sentence and definition mode
Note: Students only receive points the first time they get a vocabulary question correct in any given mode, even if they encounter the word multiple times during the mode.
Word Bank Penalty
Every time a student uses the word bank (available in Sentence and Definition modes), they receive only 60% of the points which they would otherwise have received. In other words, clicking on the word bank tab penalizes the student by 40%.
Speed Completion Bonus
If a student answers correctly within five seconds or less, their score is multiplied by 1.5.
