WWC Review of the Report "The Effects of Math Video Games on Learning." What Works Clearinghouse Single Study Review
What Works Clearinghouse
In the 2014 study, "The Effects of Math Video Games on Learning," researchers examined the impacts of math video games on the fractions knowledge of 1,468 sixth-grade students in 23 schools. The video games focused on fractions concepts including: whole units, numerator and denominator, understanding the number line, fractions computation, and slope. Students played the games independently in a predetermined sequence over a 10-day period. Using a researcher-designed assessment, study authors found positive impacts on students' knowledge of fractions concepts. The study meets the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) group design standards without reservations. Appended are: (1) Study Details; (2) Outcome measures for the mathematics achievement domain; and (3) Study findings for the mathematics achievement domain. A glossary of terms is included.
