Findings from Phase 3

After taking some time for breaking news, we return now to our research series. The full "Phase 3" BVS3D research study conducted by Regis University is due to be released sometime in mid-to-late August. The following preview results, however, were highlighted during the Wednesday panel session at the ISTE 2011 conference:

All Grade Levels
  • High interest levels demonstrated by students
  • High levels of attention and focus demonstrated by students
  • Less disruptive behaviors in classrooms

Elementary School Findings
  • Special education students showed positive gains on post-test measures

Middle School Findings
  • Positive impact on student understanding, according to teacher observations
  • Visualization particularly helpful with the special education student

High School Findings
  • Positive effects noted on student written work (more detailed descriptions and illustrations of concepts were evident)
