  1. Great site. Unfortunately after I took the hearing pitch test (26 snippets of songs!), I got NO test results no matter what I did. :( Disappointed.


  2. Nice list Erin!
    May I suggest Cogn-IQ as a valuable resource for students? This website is for Psychologists, Teachers, Educators, Students, and everyone interested in the fields that are related to testing and understanding cognitive abilities.

  3. Really great list! I am the developer of WordStash, which is also a valuable educational tool. It combines flashcards and a dictionary and uses games and quizzing to help you learn.

  4. Erin, Awesome list! I also wanted to mention Read Print as a helpful student resource. We offer over 8,000 classic books that anyone can read online for free…and, we were named one of Time Magazine’s Top 50 Sites of 2010.
