How can I choose which skill to practice?

Sumdog's adaptive learning engine knows which skills you should practice next. Once you've completed a skill, Sumdog moves you on to practice the next.

If you want to practice something different, you can either ask your teacher to set you a challenge, or you can choose a skill yourself.

To choose to work on a different skill:

  1. Log in to Sumdog with your student account.
  2. Click Choose skills on the left side of the screen.
  3. Click the Show filters button at the bottom - this lets you find skills 
  4. Check the boxes beside the name of the skill(s) you want to practice and click Save.

Note that the skill chooser button won't be available during the diagnostic test.

Tip: You won't be awarded a pet trick if you choose to practice a skill which Sumdog thinks is too easy for you. If you want to gain tricks, choose a skill that has a pet avatar shown next to it.
