Studies informing the development/advancement of the resource:
Developers spent more than three years in classrooms using early versions of the software. The original versions were developed and tested in classrooms from 4th grade and up. The early testing informed the design of the latest version of the software.
The results of these early sessions led developers to make this software available at no cost. The overall file size is small, so that it is easily used on school computers. It is a simple interface that makes for easy adoption and can be used successfully at all grade levels.
