Brainscape's study system is based on several decades of cognitive science research. Over 800 academic studies have proven the value of active recall, metacognitive self-assessment, and spaced repetition, showing that the application of just one of these study principles can boost test results by 10 to 200%.
Brainscape combines the above principles in a way that multiplies their benefits versus having them used alone. [See our white paper for deeper research.]
In addition, Brainscape conducted our own lab study at Columbia University, in which students used either Brainscape, a book, or paper flashcards to study their National Birds for 30 minutes, then took a post-test. The group who used Brainscape scored over twice as high as the other two groups. The worst score in the Brainscape group was better than the very best score in the flashcards group.
And that was just for 30 minutes of studying. For larger amounts of content, spread over a larger period of time, you can expect Brainscape to help your students learn multiple times faster, and score significantly higher, than with traditional study methods.
Finally, you can go to the App Store and read reviews on both the main Brainscape app and our single-subject standalone apps for various exams. Millions of people around the world have successfully used Brainscape to boost their test scores and change their lives. Your students could be next!
