Exam Elf - A Top Pick Math and Test Prep App
"Wow! I seriously wish I had this Top Pick app about a month ago, when my students were preparing for our standardized tests. Exam Elf is a great way for students in fourth through sixth grades to practice a wide variety of math skills with a focus on test taking strategies."
"This isn't your standard skill and drill math review though. Exam Elf works not just on grade level, Common Core aligned math standards, it also focuses on essential test taking strategies."
"This app is huge! And wow do I wish that I had this to prep my students for the 'big test.' There is a lot to like about this app."

"Today I am writing about one of my students' favorite new math apps, Exam Elf."

Exam Elf – Prepares Kids for Key Exam Skills in Mathematics
"Exam Elf is a new app that helps kids with all of the skills necessary to do well on a mathematics exam and provides an outlet for parents to reward and praise their child for a job well done."
"What I really like about this app is that it focuses less on the content of the exam and more on the actual skills needed to master a math test."
"Things like time constraints, distractions, vision, grasp and strategy are all important to test taking, especially for those prone to disappointing test grades. I also appreciate the parent zone of the app, which lets you “boost” a child’s ego with praise and digital high fives. The parent zone also give in-depth reporting on how the child is doing based on quiz results. This allows you to see all of your child’s weaknesses and strengths so you can hyper focus your attention on what they need to succeed."

New Learning Times: EdLab Review
The game is filled with bright colors, theme music, cute characters, and customizable avatars, all designed to be very appealing to children.
Exam technique alone isn’t going to earn an A, but learning how to take tests well can save students from silly mistakes.
The math concepts aren’t the main point of the game, but Exam Elf uses questions from real tests—as a result, students end up strengthening math skills as well as practicing test technique.
