When a student has finished all of the words on Membean, there are a few things that can be checked to see if more words can be granted to the student. Support can do this for you. Please email us at [email protected] for assistance.
  • IKT Abuse: Some students who have reached upper levels have achieved this by overuse of "IKT" (the "I Know This" button).
    • You can check to see if the student overused the IKT option by viewing the student's dashboard.
    • If there is a large number of words in IKT, contact Membean support and we can return the words back into the student's training stream.
    • You can also disable the IKT button for the student.
  • The student is on the middle school word list: If the student is an advanced student with a strong vocabulary, contact Membean support. We can place the student on the high school word list.
  • The student is on the high school word list: Reaching the end of Level 6 in no way indicates that a student has "completed" Membean because not every word a student has seen has been mastered.
    • Even those words that are fully mastered will be forgotten if enough time elapses.
    • It’s important that the student continues to train on Membean as a form of memory maintenance.
  • Advanced high school students with a "Stable Memory": We have seen a handful of students who complete Membean relatively quickly and need to do minimal upkeep to maintain their vocabulary. These whizzes should be very proud of their extensive lexicon!
    • We suggest that those students increase their vocabulary even more by reading classical literature and literary magazines.
    • We would be more than happy to suggest vocabulary intensive novels at a teacher's request.
    • The Atlantic Monthly, The New Yorker, The New York Times, and The Economist are good periodicals to start with.
