How to Use
Preposition Remix is designed for single-player use. From the home page the adult has the choice of selecting Support, Report, or Practice. Tap Support to watch the video tutorial, contact the developers, and back-up to iTunes. Tap report to see the data gathered for each client. A simple tap on the Practice button will bring the adult the list of clients and allow the activities to begin. Once the client is selected images are displayed on the screen.
An audio prompt tells the client what to do. If the written prompt is turned on, it will also display at the bottom of the screen. A “play” arrow allows the user to replay the audio prompt. A variety of images are displayed on the screen one of which will be in the target position. The user then selects the item in the correct location. A tap on the “done” button concludes the session and moves the program to the reports area.
When the session is complete, a simple touch to the home button brings the app to the reports area. A touch to the client’s avatar and name brings up the data for that session. The data includes: date of practice, activity, number of attempted targets, and percent accuracy. In addition, a Notes button provides the option to write a note about the session.
Preposition remix data collection reports can be emailed or exported to The Therapy Report Center for easy progress monitoring and report writing.
Preposition Remix has a “settings” button on the home screen. The settings button allows the user to select specific target prepositions or turn on all prepositions. Within the settings button there are also options to turn on and off written cues, repeat questions, and change the action for incorrect answers. Finally, within the settings area the adult can turn on/off the random question feature. When “random” is off the app moves through all 10 trials for each target preposition, which is ideal for teaching the targeted prepositions. When “random” is turned on, each selected preposition displays randomly which is ideal for formative assessment.
