I am looking for reviews of adult ed software but can't find anything. Can you help? All I see are descriptions or companies extolling their own software.
Which did you choose?
ALEKS Prep for GED Mathematics (McGraw-Hill)
Aztec GED Prep
Career Ready 101
ConnectED Platform (Common Core Achieve Online and LearnSmart Achieve )
Common Core Achieve
EssentialEd- (GED Academy and TABE Academy)
GCF Learn Free
GED Flash- see also Aztec
HMHele- SEE- Paxon Focus
Kaplan- (also see Aztec)
Paxen Focus (Steck Vaughn GED Prep)
Tell Me More (Auralog)- part of Rosetta Stone
Townsend Press’s Online Learning Center
I recommend Common Sense Education for software reviews: https://www.commonsense.org/education/search?contentType=reviews
I recommend Khan Academy and IXL as supplemental tools. I often refer people to Khan Academy if they forgot what they learned in class, because they do a good job of breaking it down visually and step by step. Their YouTube videos are the best in the business for explanations, in my opinion. It's also free to have an account with them and tracks progress well. I've had a lot of positive feedback from students using this as a tool at home.
IXL is a fun learning tool as it's a more creative way to explain and get students to engage with the work. If I remember correctly, it has at least some free content, maybe all, but I did find that it was geared more towards kids. If you have participants that don't mind that though, it's great! It really does a good job of breaking down skills by level and subject.
Hope this helps!
