Terms

There are a few terms specific to Wizard that will come in handy when using the product.

  • Course - a collection of drills all related to the same subject.
  • Drill - an exercise to practice material for a single subject. Each drill is made up of 5-12 question topics. One "question topic" may have up to 4 different questions, written in multiple formats, that may repeat depending on how the student answers. This is intentional, to ensure that users are able to anser multiple questions correctly on the same topic - proving that they truly understand the material.
  • Story - information presented before a drill consisting of text and multimedia to help students learn before answering questions.
  • Assignment - a task created by teachers to be completed by an individual student, or the entire class.
  • Teacher code - a one-time code needed to create a teacher account. This is provided by World Book. If you are not sure of your teacher code, contact your account admin or email wizard@worldbook.com.
  • Class code- the code students need to join individual classes. When a teacher creates a class, a unique class code is generated and displays on the class to share with students.
