Customer Reviews


When exploring the app I came across a school notebook with doodles and a table of contents to help with my exploring travel further. Once I entered a course section in one skill it brought me to a test of questions that showed a diagram with four multiple question answers A), B), C), and D). I liked this app because it gave the question with a picture to make your answer more visual. I also like this app because if I were stuck with a question or came across a question I didn't know, because they all could be right, there is a tool bar at the bottom with a question eliminator, a automatic answer button and a help button. Although there are good parts to the app there are some things I would change. I did like how they had a toolbar for when you get stuck but I didn't like how you were limited on how many clues I got to use. When using the app there may be a question I haven't learned yet and need some guidance to help me find a solution, but I have ran out of clues. Also I would change that instead of waiting till the end of the test to see my score, I would have them tell me if I was right or wrong when I did the problem. But this only tells you how many you got wrong not which problem . Although they have things I would change, I would say this app has really great structure and form.

I highly recommend this app

The app "Pass the Past" was a quality app for reviewing, learning, or seeing how much you know about social studies. The app was by the same creator of "DK Quiz" another quality app. Both of the apps have the same layout, result page, and quiz format. "Pass the Past" gave challenging questions for around grades five and higher. I would recommend this app to anyone who would like to study for a test, learn something new, or play around with the app to see how much you know. The only thing I don't like about this app is that there is only ten quizes, so after you take them all there is no more use for the app. Overall I highly suggest this app.

Well done, but spotted a mistake...

As a Virginia Studies teacher, I highly recommend this app to my students to help practice and prepare for their SOLs. However, I have spotted a mistake on the VA Studies portion. There is a question that says "After Reconstruction, which industry most encouraged the growth of towns and cities throughout Virginia?" The programmed answer for the app is "Shipbuilding" but the ACTUAL answer should be "Railroads". I received this question twice, and got the answer wrong when I selected Railroads. I understand there are always bugs that need to be worked out, but I hope this is fixed soon.
