Glasgow interim efficacy report

Glasgow efficacy study

The aim of this study is to determine whether there is a correlation between the length of time spent playing mathematics games on Sumdog and improvement in mathematics proficiency.

Andrew Gallacher from Glasgow University is acting as an independent reviewer to validate the methodology of this study.

This interim report discusses the results found so far regarding the correlation between the length of time spent playing mathematics games on Sumdog and improvement in mathematics proficiency between January 6 and April 4, 2016. Data collection in the Glasgow primary schools will continue until June 24, 2016 and a more detailed final report will be produced in July 2016.

We have found there is a positive correlation between the length of time students spend on Sumdog and improvement in mathematics proficiency. The more time a student spends using Sumdog, the higher their proficiency level.

We have also received a positive response from teachers who have not only seen an improvement in the mathematics ability of their class, but also an improvement in student attitude towards learning mathematics.
