Tv ads promote online “brain games” and learning tools for adults and kids. A researcher decided to test the effectiveness of one of these games, ABCmouse. She gave kids aged 3-5 experience with either ABCmouse or an alternative game that wasn’t educational (Pig Pile). After giving kids 2 weeks of experience playing their respective game, she tested their reading ability using the Burt Reading Test, which tests how many of 110 words a child can read. The words are graded in order of difficulty, so the more words children can read, the better their score. She was able to use students at a large, public preschool as participants. All the kids were aged 3 to 5.
