As I understand it, the Designer Module Software allows me to customize my own materials for use with you Assessment or Skill Builder Intervention software; is this correct?
That is correct. We provide a standard set of both Assessment and Intervention materials. You can customize or create materials for use with our software using the Designer Module. The custom materials developed work just like our own materials.

What are some of the situations where creating customized material might be of use?
The Designer Module provides tremendous flexibility to the assessment and intervention activities. Any kind of activity that that is used with the standard system can be used with your own materials. You can create your own comprehension tasks for use with the Assessment Module. You can create custom spelling or vocabulary list for use with the Skill Builder Module. As an example, many schools have lists of words for each grade that students should have mastered by the end of the school year. It is a simple matter to make Skill Builder exercises out of those lists.

Can I create foreign language materials with the Designer?
Creating foreign language materials for either Assessment or Skill Building is an excellent use of the Designer Software. When creating materials you can select whatever font you wish to use including foreign language fonts.

Can I make vocabulary exercises with the Designer?
It is easy to create vocabulary exercises for use with the Skill Builder module. When making the recordings for the individual words you would want to record a meaning for the words instead of simply the name of the word. When the student practices with the vocabulary items the student should speak something that indicates understanding of the meaning of the word. For example if the word is 'furniture' the student might say “table”.

Your Skill Builder exercises allow one to hear the proper response to each item. Will the ones I create have this capability?
Yes. The Designer software will facilitate the process of making recordings corresponding to each item. Your recording will play whenever an item is clicked in the Skill Builder Module.
