About Wordsmart
About WordSmart
Pioneers in effective learning environments and retention, WordSmart is an award-winning, privately owned company located in San Diego with over 100 employees responsible for Course and Content Development, Tutoring, and Educational Consulting.

Schools, companies, institutions, families, and over 100,000 students use WordSmart as part of their learning curriculum.

Background
David A. Kay formally incorporated WordSmart Educational Technology in 1993. Mr. Kay is widely regarded as an industry pioneer and has been actively involved in the computer industry for more than three decades. As the Vice President of Marketing, Mr. Kay spearheaded the growth of KayPro Corporation (KayPro Personal Computers) from a small electronics company into a $100 million industry leader.

WordSmart’s products are based on the work of Johnson O’Connor, a pioneer in the field of educational testing. Despite the prevailing assumption decades ago that intelligence was predetermined, O’Connor believed that intelligence was not strictly innate. He proposed that both innate aptitudes and learned information constituted intelligence, and that it could be heightened and improved. Evidence of significant improvement on intelligence tests after preparation supported this theory. Trying to understand this dynamic component of intelligence, O’Connor found that an extensive vocabulary is the single most important indicator of lifetime success, whether financial, professional, or personal.

About Our Research
From preschool to continuing education, our mission is to improve the base of knowledge—vocabulary—through easy-to-use interactive software at an affordable price.

More than 70 years of research at the Johnson O’Connor Research Foundation Inc. has shown that vocabulary is the single biggest indicator of success—be it financial, personal, or otherwise.

A strong vocabulary improves reading comprehension and speaking skills, helping you interact with the world around you. Also, it gives you the power to expand your own thoughts and communicate them better.

Our software is developed with you in mind. An initial test determines your ideal learning level. Afterward, the program continues to assess your progress to ensure that you are continuously learning at your optimal level. This way, your intake is efficient and internalized, long-term.

Each lesson, from basic phonics to SAT preparation and beyond, is presented in 5 unique multi-sensory modes to integrate multiple learning pathways. Your needs are catered to, whether you are a visual, audio, or hands-on learner.

This means that WordSmart software is customized, and increases in difficulty as your vocabulary and reading comprehension grow. This is ideal for all learning levels. Advanced students use it to excel while challenged students use it to close the gap.

FAQ - General Questions
Is the WordSmart software based on scientific research?
WordSmart Software is based on more than 70 years of research at the Johnson O’Connor Research Foundation. Dr. O’Connor showed that vocabulary is the single biggest indicator of success—be it academic, financial, or professional.
Can increasing your vocabulary really increase your IQ?
Yes! The size of your vocabulary is one of the best indicators of how well you will do on an IQ test, as well as standardized tests.
There are multiple levels to the WordSmart program, how do I determine which level is best for me or my student?
Because each student is different, even students within the same grade level, we have created the WordSmart Challenge placement program. This will be sent as a free gift in your trial WordSmart package and an online version of this test is available. Any student can take this test and at the end of the program it will show what level of the WordSmart series that student should use. We suggest that the student take the challenge 2–3 times and whatever level the challenge suggests most often is where the student should start.
Does the WordSmart product prepare you for both the SAT and the ACT?
Yes, WordSmart is a general knowledge program which will assist students in the preparing for both college entrance exams. WordSmart is so confident the program will help to increase the student's SAT/ACT score that we offer a guaranteed increase on both tests.
How long does your SAT/ACT guarantee last?
You have up to two years after the date of purchase to take advantage of our SAT/ACT guarantee.
Can I exchange my order for a different level?
Yes, but only within the initial 30-day trial period. If you would like to exchange your WordSmart product for a different level please contact the customer service department.
Can I get extensions on my 30-day trial?
Yes, but you must contact customer service, before the end of the trial period, in order to be granted an extended evaluation time.
When can I expect to receive my order?
Your product should arrive five to seven business days after you place the order.
Do I have to pay a shipping and handling cost for this item?
Yes, the cost of shipping both to the customer and back to WordSmart (if the item is returned) is the responsibility of the customer.
There was an insert in my order that said I would receive free gifts for referring friends. How do I get those gifts?
To receive each gift, the friend(s) that you refer to WordSmart must contact us by phone or by completing the online form.

Technical Questions
Where can I find my Product Serial Number/Activation Code?
The product serial number and the activation code are the same thing. The Activation Code is located in two places: on your invoice (right under the list of products you received), and on the sheet attached to you invoice, which says "Attention" at the top of it. On the "Attention Sheet" the Activation Code is in large letters, inside a box. This sheet also has detailed instructions pertaining to the activation of your product. The Activation Code/Serial Number will only needed to be installed one time - additional volumes do not require a key if you already have at least one WordSmart volume installed on your computer.
What if I have technical problems or don’t know how to load the program?
WordSmart offers free technical support to all our customers. Simply write to the technical support department or call 1-800-858-9673 op 1. If a technician is not available for immediate assistance, leave a message and someone will contact you shortly.

We’re Committed to Ensuring Your Privacy

At WordSmart, it is of utmost importance to us that you have a safe and secure experience while visiting our site. We also want you to be aware that in some circumstances, we must collect customer information. We recognize that we must maintain and use your information responsibly, and this document explains our practices regarding the information you submit to us via our website.



What Information We Collect

Unregistered Users

Visitors to our website can browse some areas of the site without disclosing any personally identifiable information. We do track information provided to us by your browser, including the website you came from (known as the “referring URL”), the type of browser you use and the date and time of your access. WordSmart also logs your Internet Protocol (IP) Address. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your PC every time you browse the Internet. Information from IP addresses is used for system administration, to examine overall traffic trends, and to troubleshoot. This information is used only in the aggregate form. IP addresses are not linked to any personally identifiable information. This means that the user session is tracked but the user remains anonymous.


Registered Users

In order to make purchases and to receive mailings, we ask users to register. The following information may be required for registration: first and last name, email address, and password. You also have the capability to opt in or out of receiving WordSmart’s mailings and mailings from partners and affiliates of WordSmart.


Making a Purchase

To make a purchase on WordSmart, we require that you provide your shipping and billing address (if they differ), phone number and credit card information (if paying by credit card) in addition to your registration information.
