And now for the Top 8 Tech Sites for Test Prep...
Arcademics is math and reading practice site with an emphasis in quick recall. Teachers can select the games their students are able to play. There are multiplication, addition, verbs, sight words, and a variety of other topic games. My students absolutely love this site! Once they received their logins they were meeting each other at night on their home computers to race each other at Multiplication Grand Prix.

Grand Prix Multiplication is just one of the multiplication games. Teachers are able to track progress and see accuracy, how many attempted, and the length of time it takes to finish a problem. This is especially important for those multiplication facts!

I really enjoy this site, and I know my students do too. When I logged in to get the screen shots this post, one of last years students had used the site a few days ago (yes, in the middle of the summer!) The only real downfall I see in this program is the emphasis on quickness. I think it can hinder some students that struggle with typing/mousing skills and also those that are a little slower to process.
Have you used Arcademics? What are the pros and cons you see in the program?
