About the Study

In order to test the effectiveness of Elevate as a cognitive training app, we collaborated with an independent research company and an independent analyst.

We provided a control group and a group of Elevate users with identical pre-tests to assess their performance in four key skill groups.

Elevate users trained using our app during a four-week period, after which the Elevate users and the control group took identical post-tests.

Our analyst found that Elevate users improved 69% more than non-users, and the more they played Elevate, the better their results.
