About Membean

Membean is a vocabulary website that offers programs for classrooms or for personal studying and test prep (SAT and GRE). Teachers can set up classes, pre-assess students through the tool, and then set weekly practice goals. Settings can be further customized for special education students, ELLs, and students with dyslexia. The teacher dashboard provides extensive data on student performance, tracking minutes, accuracy, words missed, and more.

Teacher Review

Membean is a fantastic, easy to use teaching tool. There are many support videos within the program for teachers and students. Membean actually gleams information from a team of teachers across the country gaining feedback on the program, which is why enhancements and updates are frequent to meet the needs of students and teachers. For example, one of the future updates will allow the program to be accessible on any device and function properly. It is already accessible, but it does not always load in the way it is intended.

I use Membean for in-depth vocabulary study with all of my courses from students needing extra support to my honors-level students. For high school, there are options for students performing below expectations because of the program design grades sixth through twelve. A sixth-grader, who is significantly behind - low literacy, will begin at the first level for middle school. Membean offers different levels within the middle school model. It may take the low literacy student a while to progress. The teacher would set the differentiation tools to help low-literacy students be more successful using the program. There are many settings including settings specific for students with dyslexia. Membean offers writing options, novel study accompaniments, pod-casts, and so much more. I can use it for independent study with my students with the assessment model. I can add things to enrich the experience for my students with the experts from Membean available around the clock. The support from Membean is unbelievable.

Why Membean in Your School?

Knowing the meanings of words, and being able to use them, is an essential skill for both reading comprehension and effective writing. Researchers have long known that teaching individual words is essential, but it's even more important to build a student's word consciousness.

Membean helps:

Focus limited resources

Creating an effective vocabulary learning system is arduous and challenging, something which most teachers do not have time to do in the most effective and efficient way.

Reinforce learning

Our Memory Engine schedules learning and repetitions to ensure that what students learn is not forgotten.
