As part of the two-year partnership, Yale researchers at the play2PREVENT Lab conducted a randomized, controlled trial of Yogome math games with more than130 children ages 5 to 11.
The goal of the study was to improve a child’s math skills and improve their motivation to play math games. By providing students with various levels, students were able to progress through the game, while the study captured any points of difficulty.
Knowledge Battle did improve math skills in participants that played the game. Participants with a lower level of first-grade math skills may benefit the most from playing Knowledge Battle.
Another important finding was that among participants with less math skills, the Knowledge Battle group’s average overall math score increased more than the control group’s average math score to the level of statistical significance. This finding suggests that the participants with a lower level of first-grade math skills may benefit the most from playing Knowledge Battle.
