SAS® Flash Cards


SAS® Flash Card gives you the ability to create, learn, and share through an easy to use flash card application for the iPhone and iPad. With SAS® Flash Cards you can browse flash card decks in numerous subjects on the web, create new flash card decks in a variety of question formats, and share the flash card decks you create with others. Students of all ages can create flash card decks for virtually any subject they are studying. Once a flash card deck has been created, students can then upload the deck to share with friends. SAS® Flash Cards is truly an app for everyone!

Download a deck template in .CSV or .XLS format. These are available for you to use to follow when uploading a deck:


CSV XLS Sample Sample Card
Multiple Choice SASFCTextMC.csv SASFCTextMC.xls SampleTextMC.csv Image
Fill in the Blank SASFCTextFITB.csv SASFCTextFITB.xls SampleTextFITB.csv Image
Plain/Front Back SASFCTextPLAIN.csv SASFCTextPLAIN.xls SampleTextPLAIN.csv Image
True/False SASFCTextTF.csv SASFCTextTF.xls SampleTextTF.csv Image


CSV XLS Sample Sample Card
Multiple Choice SASFCMathMC.csv SASFCMathMC.xls SampleMathMC.csv Image
Fill in the Blank SASFCMathFITB.csv SASFCMathFITB.xls SampleMathFITB.csv Image
Plain/Front Back SASFCMathPLAIN.csv SASFCMathPLAIN.xls SampleMathPLAIN.csv Image
True/False SASFCMathTF.csv SASFCMathTF.xls SampleMathTF.csv Image

Open the file in spreadsheet application such as Numbers or Microsoft Excel. Complete one row for each flash card in your flash card deck. Each row refers to one flash card. Therefore 20 rows of data will turn into 20 flash cards. It is important that no changes are made to the first row of the template. Without the first row provided in the template your deck will fail to upload. Note the type of deck (multiple choice, fill in the blank, plain, or true/false) you are making. You will need this information in the next step. When you complete the spreadsheet be sure to save or export the file as either an .xls or .csv file. Other file types will fail to upload.

Note: CSV uses commas to separate individual pieces of flash cards into columns. Therefore, if you choose to use CSV do not include commas in your directives, instructions, answers, or clarifications.

Complete the form below with the Deck information about your deck. Include the title of the deck, the author, and a description of your flash card deck content. This information will help others search and find your flash card deck. Be sure to browse and find the CSV or XLS file you created in Step 2. When you are sure you have completed the information as desired select Submit to upload your deck.

After a successful upload of your deck, it will be reviewed by the SAS® and made publicly available if approved.

Making flash cards is a great way to practice problems, learn a language, or memorize facts. Asking students to create decks for themselves and to share with other students is a great retention exercise. Students can utilize Text, Audio (including recordings of their own voice), and Images to create multimodal flash cards that engage learners. SAS Flash Cards also provides a Quiz mode which holds feedback until the student has completed all cards in the quiz. Students can easily share their quiz results with teachers or themselves via email or twitter.
