Includes Assessment - Start with a Test Drive The ClueFinders Mystery of The Missing Amulet contains a pre-assessment activity or test drive which customizes the program’s difficulty level for each player. This optional test asks players a series of questions so it can place players at levels that match their abilities. Activities not suitable for assessment are excluded from the test and usually begin at the first difficulty level.  Each assessment test question is both spoken and displayed. Players can click on LapTrap to have a question repeated. Possible answers to the question cycle until the player chooses an answer by clicking on the horn. Note: Players must complete the entire pre-assessment activity in order to have their results recorded and used in The ClueFinders Mystery of the Missing Amulet. After completing the test drive players must sign in as new players to have their results applied to the game.  Assessment results will not be applied if players exit before signing in as new players.  Assessment results will also not affect existing games—ones already in progress before taking the test drive.  If a game customized with assessment results is too difficult or easy for a player the program will automatically adjust the level up or down to better suit his or her needs and interests. (See Auto-adjusting Skill Levels in the Educational Focus.) A player can also adjust levels manually at any time (See LapTrap in Getting Help.) Skills Learned Educational Focus The ClueFinders Mystery of the Missing Amulet builds children’s reading abilities in a rich game world filled with mystery and exploration. It is designed to provide engaging reading experiences that will lead to healthy reading habits. Reading to Learn An important change in reading ability takes place during the upper elementary years. At this time many children shift from learning to read to reading to learn. They are now better able to use contextual clues to understand new words and so begin to build vocabulary at an ever increasing pace. With a larger vocabulary their confidence in their own reading ability increases as well. This allows many children to develop a taste for reading for personal enjoyment as they discover the vast variety of literature available to them. Auto-adjusting Skill Levels Each activity in The ClueFinders Mystery of the Missing Amulet has multiple levels so the program can move from simple to more complex concepts at a pace that suits each player. Players can tackle more challenging problems even if they haven’t mastered all skills or concepts in the program; most skill areas adjust their levels up or down independently from the others thereby creating a tailored learning experience that addresses each player’s specific needs. The program carefully tracks players’ responses to each level’s activities using that information to adjust the type of puzzle presented. Users may also choose to adjust the difficulty levels manually.  If players want more practice on a particular puzzle type or content area they can use Practice Mode. In Practice Mode players can choose a specific activity and level on which to work. Problem-Solving Help In The ClueFinders Mystery of the Missing Amulet an onscreen character explains each activity. This explanation aims to support players in understanding what they are being asked to do. Often it directs players toward recognizing the different parts of a puzzle on the screen that they may need to use. If users don’t understand the directions the first time they can hear the directions repeated by clicking on the puzzle character or on the ClueFinders Joni and Owen.  Players can also get help by clicking on the ever-present red video phone. The video phone keeps the four ClueFinders in constant communication. Leslie and Santiago will automatically call when they notice players having difficulty solving a puzzle or players can click on the red video phone at any time to receive additional support in solving a question or puzzle.
