Meister Cody impresses in 23 of 24 categories

A scientific study compares the quality of different dyscalculia training courses

Those who have a child at home with math weakness will inevitably face the choice of choosing a suitable treatment or training option. Many parents choose a math app. But which app truly helps?

Hildrun Schürig pursued this question in a market analysis and examined "apps as an intervention for children with dyscalculia." The selection was made through the Google Play store and only functional German-language training courses that can be downloaded for free were included in the study.

 

A Clear Test Winner

Only the learning program Meister Cody – Talasia was able to impress, which in addition to training also offers a free dyscalculia screening test. 23 of the 24 categories were classified as "fully satisfied." Only the category "size" was classified as "partially fulfilled" due to the 321 MB app. By comparison: the next best apps (Quix 1x1 Einmaleins [Multiplication table], Maaltafel Fee and Sicher Rechnen lernen [Learn Arithmetic Easily]) only achieved "fully satisfied" in just 13 of 24 categories. Further behind were Math Trainer free and Perception Training Wahrnehmungstraining R01 [Perception Training R01] lite each with 11 of 24 "fully satisfied."

The market analysis was carried out as part of a scientific study called "Learning While Playing: Serious Games in New Media as an Intervention in the Field of Children with Dyscalculia" to achieve a Bachelor's degree in the field of health communication at the University of Bielefeld.
