iScore5 AP Psych is an app dedicated to helping students score high marks on the AP examination. The app makes exam review entertaining and engaging for students. The creators have designed an app that functions as a game and helps students master over 800 vocabulary words for AP Psychology. The app, however, goes beyond merely learning basic vocabulary by challenging students to master multiple-choice questions in levels of increasing difficulty. The questions have all been written by experienced AP Psychology teachers or College professors of psychology, all of whom are also AP exam readers.
The interactive interface of the app is easy to navigate, and students may choose to return to study mode to practice basic vocabulary at any point during the game. The app records a running score allowing students to monitor their progress and better understand the concepts they will need to know for the exam. Within each level, including the study mode, the questions and practice items are organized according to units and allow for the targeted study of specific areas in the AP curriculum.
The app is also an effective way for students to prepare for classroom unit exams, midterms, and finals. Because it is portable and easily accessed by phone or tablet, students are more likely to review more often than with traditional review books. Even if students only have five or ten minutes to review at a time, this will result in an impressive increase in knowledge of psychology content due to the spacing effect.
How to Play!
Study Level: 800 key concepts for students to master organized by AP Psychology unit are presented in a flashcard format. The study level is available for review at any level of the game.
Level 1: Vocabulary questions are organized by each of the AP Psychology units and presented in a multiple-choice format. Level 1 provides 20 terms at a time for each unit, so it is recommended that students play this level often as the app generates a different set of terms each time the student plays.
BONUS: Between each of the levels, students can answer 20 multiple-choice questions for additional points based on the work of famous psychologists mentioned in the official College Board AP Psychology course outline, and the bonus option is available at all levels.
Levels 2, 3, and 4: These levels contain a set of multiple-choice questions in an AP format for each of the 14 AP Psychology units. Each level increases the level of difficulty: level 2 (general understanding), level 3 (intermediate difficulty), and level 4 (advanced). The correct answer to each question is explained regardless of whether or not the student answered correctly.
Level 5: The final level consists of a 100-question sample AP Psychology exam. Students are given the same amount of time they will have during the official AP Psychology exam (1 hour and 10 minutes) and provides them with their total score.
FRQ Practice: In addition to all of the levels and practice multiple choice questions, the app also includes two practice Free Response Questions and rubrics.
The iscore5 AP Psych app provides students with a fun and entertaining way to review for the exam. Because all of the questions are crafted by expert AP Psychology teachers and university psychology professors, the quality of the questions is very similar to what will be seen on the AP exam. Additionally, the app features a Leaderboard that allows students to see how they are doing compared to others if they choose.
