Sumdog: learning that your child will love.

Sumdog's educational games are used in thousands of schools worldwide. They motivate children to work on mathmaths, reading and writing.

As children play, they answer questions - each one personalised to that child's needs. Meanwhile, Sumdog's adaptive learning engine guides their progress.

And the best bit? Lots of Sumdog is completely free, with no time limit. You only pay if you want a Family Membership.

Educational games

Sumdog uses games to encourage your child to practicepractise the exact skills they need to work on. It's never boring - and always relevant. More...

Unlike most learning games, Sumdog can separate the education from the fun. So while your child is free to choose what to play, our learning engine makes sure he's still working on the right skills.

And it's great for motivation: when you move on to a new skill, you can still use your favoritefavourite game to work on it.

Rewards & levels

At Sumdog, we believe motivation is the key to successful learning.

Frequent rewards give your child a stream of achievable goals, and a personal investment in their Sumdog work.

Motivating goals

As children work, they progress through Sumdog's animal ranks - a great motivation. More...

The animals get rarer as the child progresses, so there's a real incentive to collect the rarer ranks.

We've given a little introduction to each one, too, so you can broaden your knowledge of zoology, too!

Live information

Log in to your free parent account: you'll see your child's effort and accuracy reported live on your dashboard. More...

You can use this to quietly see when to reward your child's effort, or when a little help might be needed.

Test your child

Set a timed test using the assessment tool. Sumdog generates a set of questions, and reports back to you. More...

The assessments are only available with a Family Membership. Assessments don't feature any gameplay. Instead, your child sees a series of controlled questions, with a time limit.

If you wish, you can even select the skill you want to test, and change individual questions until your test is just right.

Progress reports

With a Family Membership, you can access detailed progress reports, based on the answers your child has given. More...

You can drill down into individual skills, checking your child's strong and weak skills.

So while your child is enjoying Sumdog's games, you're making sure that she's making the right educational progress.

Virtual fun. But very real progress.
