ClozePro by Crick Software (www.cricksoft.com) is a program intended especially for fill-in-the-blank learning methods. Geared for elementary, middle or high school learners, the program is designed to help test a student’s comprehension of a piece of text. The program allows teachers to use text from current topics being discussed in class, as well as content from Web pages or other electronic formats. It features speech and picture support to assist students at all reading levels. It also lets teachers enhance their Cloze activities with the Crick Picture Library, which boasts more than 1,000 available images. In addition, ClozePro activities can be completed on the computer or as printed worksheets.
