A new toggle in Options disables any intense effects when a player gets a question wrong. This feature is available on a per-student basis inside the game, or class- or school-wide from the Admin tool.
Spanish language support
We've introduced Spanish language support for Big Brainz hints and buttons. This feature is available in-game only. To enable Spanish language support, from the Options menu, click or tap the Language button to toggle between English and Spanish.
This is an option for fast finishers that lets students replay the game at even more difficult levels requiring a faster response time. The three levels are Ninja Apprentice, Ninja, and Ninja Master. Ninja is very challenging; Ninja Master is simply ridiculous. Ninja mode is just for fun after students have shown proficiency by completing all four operations with at least 95% fluency in 3rd grade or above, or by completing addition and subtraction with at least 95% fluency for 2nd grade and lower. Until that time, students see a grayed-out Ninja button with a pop-up explanation. When students first unlock Ninja mode, they are able to start playing Ninja Mode at the easiest level—Ninja Apprentice. To view a previous certificate, click the Close button.
Forced operation order
We've added a feature that allows an educator to force a particular operation order. Access this feature in Reports > Edit, and check the Remove Operation Ordering box.
You can now demo Big Brainz game play from the iPad more quickly by skipping initial placement tests. After pressing the Demo button, you will be able to first skip the typing test, and then the pre-test.
