When a student graduates from the tutorial as a Challenge Master the app they have personalized and will use will have three functions.
- Practice: Students enhance their adjustment skills. They also practice breaking down cognitive and emotional obstacles that can block access to their inner states of confidence, determination and concentration at challenge points. They practice gaining access to these inner resource states; “even when I feel something I don’t want to feel”, “even when what I am thinking about is getting in my way” and, “even when I am about to give up before I try to do my best”.
- Real Time Use: Students use their individualized, tried and true adjustment skills to quickly and efficiently access and replenish confidence, determination and concentration. Students can utilize this mode in gaming and academics; when they are trying to level up, or when they are studying, learning, problem solving or in class about to take a quiz or test.
- Homework sessions and projects: Students can receive "Check For Readiness" prompts when beginning a homework or project session and, intermittently, during that session. Then they will be provided with tried and true "Get Ready" instructions designed to help them maximize their levels of determination, concentration and confidence whenever they need more to do their best work.
