In a recent study done by a 3rd party educational specialists in Denmark, Labster was found to be significantly more effective than traditional class-room teaching.
Two test groups consisting of 60 students in each were participating in the study.
Group A, would receive traditional class-room teaching of 45 minutes with a lecture performed by one of the best danish teachers in biotechnology.
Group B, would only use/play Labster for 45 minutes, in a game that specifically teaches the same topic.
Both Group A and B performed a multiple choice test before and after the lecture/Labster session.
The multiple choice test was created by the 3rd party organization, and Labster was not involved in the creation of the questions.
After the experiment, the two test groups were compared, and it was evident that Group B, who only used Labster, were significantly better at answering the questions in the multiple choice test than Group A.
Furthermore a follow-up test were performed a few weeks later, to test the retention level, and it was shown that retention level did not drop after using Labster.
A manuscript is currently being written to publish the results of this study, and the detailed results will be published here at the time of publication.
