An online game for kids -
an assessment tool for educators.
Click to watch a 90 second overview of Zoo U
Zoo U is an exciting new offering from SELmedia®. Zoo U is an online adventure game for children in grades 3 and 4. After customizing their avatar, players explore a variety of social situations (e.g., impulse control, initiation) in a virtual school setting.
In real time, the game automatically adjusts the level of difficulty, making social interactions easier or harder, according to the skill level of the player.
Zoo U is also a powerful assessment tool for educators. Behind the scenes, data is collected on the player's every move including the choices they made during the social interactions, where else on the screen they clicked (did they get distracted?), and how long it took to complete the scenes. With the click of a button, that data is transformed into easy to read, graphical reports showing the player’s relative social skill level. Download sample report.
Zoo U is designed to be used as an assessment tool at the Tier 1 (universal) level, allowing for quick and objective screening for assignment to Tier 2 social skills interventions.
Zoo U earned rave reviews during recent feasibility testing. Educators overwhelmingly reported that the program is an easy to use and valuable tool to help them assess students' social skills and monitor progress over time. Students also loved Zoo U, with an observed 96% on-task behavior and numerous exclamations of "This is awesome!" and "When can I play more?".
Purchase price allows access to Zoo U for a full year and includes any upgrades and enhanced versions as they may deploy throughout the year. Zoo U is renewable annually.
