I'm not involved in education any more apart from being a dad, (so, pretty involved I guess really!). But as a parent helper at my son's school we've made a weekly online spelling test, which auto-marks the learners' attempts and sends the results to an email address. It's another angle for the onslaught on raising fundamental literacy skills.

The coding was done by a colleague and he's made it so easy to make a new weekly test that I wanted to share it. It takes me about 15 minutes to create a new test with 10 spellings.

I know there are loads of great resources online for spelling, but to make something tailored to a specific class, week by week, where their attempts can be monitored is pretty sweet I think.

Follow this link for the spelling tests. There are some mental maths tests we are working on too.
If you want the data files to do your own, just leave me a message.
You need to be able to record and edit some audio, have Flash on your computer (the instructions for editing are really easy) and an html editor like Dreamweaver, and a server to dump the files on.
