What is Practice, and when should I do it?
We recommend Practice for short-term goals like learning for an upcoming quiz or homework assignment.
Note for Teachers: When you assign a Vocabulary List to a class, you are assigning a Practice activity for that list. When you see percentage completion reports for each student (and the entire class), you are viewing the maximum percentage completion that they have attained in a Practice session. If you are grading students based on Vocabulary.com, we recommend that you use Practice session completeness.
What is Add to Learning Program, and when should I use it?
When you click on "Add to Learning Program," we will work with you until you master every word on the list.
Remember, mastering words takes time, so learning a list (which is really mastering every word on that list) can take a long time. For some long lists, it could take months.
If you need to learn multiple lists of words, over a longer period of time (say a whole semester), then go ahead and click "Add to Learning Program" on each list that you want to learn.
