A study was carried out in St John’s Green School, Essex, United Kingdom with a sample size of sixty one children in Year 3 aged between 8-9 years old. A group used Sounds English Phonics in the classroom during the school day and was scheduled to spend fifteen minutes a day using the app over 20 school days (a 30 day period), within their scheduled standard literacy class.
Sounds English Phonics was 2.8 times more effective than the standard programme within the study period of only 30 days.
The majority of students using Sounds English Phonics gained more than 1 year in reading age in the test period. The average gain amongst this test group was 11 months. Every student in the test group improved their reading age.
Additionally, 42% of children in the test group learnt all 92 written sounds within 15 school days and 100% learnt all 92 in 20 school days.
"This app has been extremely well produced. It is clear to see from both the app itself but also via the developer’s website as well as from the content within the app. Unlike some literacy and phonic apps that claim that they do make a difference this developer has spent time undertaking research in school settings to make sure their app not only meets the needs of schools and the users but that it does have some benefit. It is ‘small’ aspects like this from a developer that really gives confidence in an app when you are choosing between so many apps in such a saturated market especially when school budgets are tight and they are looking to maximise the resources that they do purchase."
