Implementation of Computer-Based Cognitive Assessment and Cognitive Training with Elementary Students Lagging in Academic Performance
Product Studied: Mindprint, BrainWare SAFARI
|Subjects||50 third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students at Riverside Elementary School, Evans, Georgia.|
|Usage||BrainWare was used 3-4 sessions per week, 30 minutes per session, 12 weeks|
|Assessment||Mindprint Cognitive Assessment|
Summary of Findings:
The overwhelming majority of the students experienced substantial growth in their cognitive skills in multiple areas and all students saw growth in at least some areas. Average growth across all ten of the Mindprint subtests was 21 percentile points. The results of testing with the Mindprint assessment confirmed that there were non-instructional reasons for the difficulties these students were having with academic work, and their post-test results suggest that they have now developed their underlying cognitive skills to the level where they are more likely to be successful in their academic endeavors.
