This activity provides students a nice way to practice and increases their understanding of the content. I will add it to my collection and plan to use it in the classroom.

Technical Remarks:

Very easy to use.

Time spent reviewing site: 30 minutes

I enjoyed visiting this site and the practice Quiz. I believe this would be a great tool tointroduce to my students in the virtual classroom, maybe as a Learning Activity in the next course redesign. I found the concept great; a little more body shoudl be dedicated perhaps to the preparatory phase (prior to taking the Quiz).

I would have stayed longer but time ran out, I simply looked around. It is
interesting. I would look into this site another time.

Technical Remarks:

Not a complicated site to explore.

1)I spent about 10 minutes at this site
2)The quality of the site is good but limited
3)The teaching or learning effect is limited to examples of non and positive
reinforcements-very limted for information.
4) The web site is very user friendly but hard to move to the area you want as
you have to take a test to move foward.

Technical Remarks:

The site is technically limited, hard to move freely through the site.

I spent about an hour viewing this site. I enjoyed doing the quiz activity.
Personally, I felt I knew all about self positive reinforcement, but I was sadly
mistaking. I was defiantely enlightened by some of the information offered.

Technical Remarks:

Very easy to navigate. It's educational along with interactive, which makes for
a good combination.
