This application also randomly selects between 5 correct messages. The 5th graders who used this program as review loved it (it really generated a fantastic healthy buzz), and it seems to me to be an opportunity to do some graphing and statisical analysis. My future apps are going to have 7 to 10 correct answer messages that are weighted. One message will be common while one will have a 1 in a 100 chance of occuring. Everything else will fall in between. The kids can tally their answers and then analyze the results (find the patterns).
I really want to put messages like "Receiving Instant Message" that switches to "U R Gr8t" in the applications. I know I already have one "no" vote on the rationalle that the slang will show up everywhere. If anybody has any opinions on that let me know. I have some really cool "wrong answer" messages that I won't use.
