Shared by Free Technology for Teachers

Examville is an online resource for preparing for standardized tests and for studying specific content areas. Examville features full-length practice tests of the SAT, GRE, GMAT, and LSAT. The tests are timed. Test takers receive their scores as soon as they finish the test.

Examville also gives users the opportunity to create study groups to study online with the help of classmates and teachers. Teachers and students can use the study guides uploaded to the site by others or upload their own study guides for others to use.


Visualize Text

WordSift is a tool that was created primarily for teachers. Mainly, think of it playfully – as a toy in a linguistic playground that is available to instantly capture and display the vocabulary structure of texts, and to help create an opportunity to talk and play with language.

WordSift helps anyone easily sift through texts — just cut and paste any text into WordSift and you can engage in a verbal quick-capture! The program helps to quickly identify important words that appear in the text. This function is widely available in various Tag Cloud programs on the web, but we integrate it here with a few other functions, such as visualization of word relationships and Google searches of images and videos. With just a click on any word in the Tag Cloud, the program displays instances of sentences in which that word is used in the text.
