About Examberry 11+ Non Verbal Reasoning

The skills needed to complete a Non Verbal Reasoning paper (NVR) are tricky to teach. This app takes a step by step approach to the types of questions commonly used and allows children and parents to see where they went wrong.
 
Initially, there is an overview of what is required in each key skill. Covering nets, matrices, belongs with, odd one out, next in the series, codes and analogies. Then practice tests leading to a timed (1 hour) mock test implementing all the skills learnt.

Examberry 11+ Non Verbal Reasoning Review

There are quite a few apps teaching Non Verbal Reasoning. For many children it is a difficult area as it is often hard to explain what a question is asking. 11+ Non Verbal Reasoning  - Examberry takes a structured approach and has worked hard to explain both question types and individual questions to give students an insight into how to succeed in this often tricky area of the 11+.
 
Non Verbal Reasoning was added to the 11+ to test underlying ability. It requires skills in problem solving, fluid thinking and logic to succeed and often children and parents are left with more questions than they started with after a tricky NVR paper!
 
What is nice about this app is that it is not too flashy, too wordy or too time pressured. Children are encouraged to read explanations about the types of questions and then ‘have a go’. It is really helpful if parents can work along side children to discuss the questions and to read the explanations together. 
 
When reviewing the answers children click on individual questions where the right answer is shown and the handy ! button explains what the question required you to do. This is a feature often left out of other apps which assume that by showing the right answer, children will automatically understand where they went wrong. 
 
The mock test allows children to implement the skills they have learnt. Each section is kept separate and explanations are given along the way. The timer allows students an hour to complete the test as this is often the time allocated in the 11+ exam. There is no option to allow extra time which some students may be entitled to. There is only one mock test available on the free version of the app, but further tests can be purchased as required.
 
Some other useful additions to this app are the ability to rule out wrong answers by double clicking them (a skill that is taught by many 11+ tutors). The ability to pause the mock test and resume is useful. Eye fatigue can be a problem in NVR tests as there are so many little things to look for on an unforgiving black and white format, children should be encouraged to take a break and rest their eyes for a couple of seconds when required.
 
The app doesn’t try to do too much and what it does it does well. There are few sound effects and children can complete the questions at their own pace without an invasive clock looming over them. One floor is that the screen orientation is fixed so some children will have to turn their device upside down to play.
