Abstract

This paper analyses an experiment on the effect of an individualized, digital practice tool on numeracy skills for 337 seventh grade students. The first stage of the experiment shows that offering students the opportunity to practice numeracy digitally at home (intent-to-treat) leads to a substantial and significant increase in numeracy performance growth. The second stage reveals that the effectiveness of the tool mainly stems from its individualized nature. With good implementation prospects and relatively low costs, the consequences are discussed to be potentially large.
