»Students who used system between 2014 and 2016 had 10% better learning outcomes in maths than those who did not. 30% increase for students within lower social economic environments.«

Government of Uruguay, press release and study
The study was performed by the Centre for Economic Research (CINVE – Centro de Investigaciones Económicas) in Montevideo on behalf of the Uruguayan government. The data is based on results from 2143 students in 237 schools who were in third grade in 2013 and sixth grade in 2016.

Efficacy study with 1,000 students

Over 500 schools in Germany are working with bettermarks. In 2009, the Transfer Center for Neuroscience and Learning (ZNL) at the University of Ulm made a study to evaluate efficacy:
»The results from all schools show a significant positive effect: the pupils who worked with the bettermarks system achieved on average better results than those in the control group, who did not use the system.«

Analysis of learning data in the Netherlands

In the Netherlands, digitalisation has progressed considerably. Students are working in average over 90 minutes per week with bettermarks:
»With a significance of 99.8%, students with more intense usage (more than 10 exercise series in a topic) achieve on average at least 12% better results in a post-test than students with lower intense usage (3 or less exercise series in a topic). Performance gap between higher and lower level is reduced.«
