Fossil App Student Performance Data

I have used this program in my Earth Science class in SW Virginia for the 2015 to 2016 school year with high school students and in my paleontology class at Ferrum College. In an hour, the high school students were able to identify on average 8 fossils at an accuracy of 80%.  At the college when compared with a traditional lab with actual fossils and a lab manual, students scored 31% higher with the fossils app.

More details on the effectiveness of the app were published in the National Association of Geoscience Teachers Bulletin on pages 5 to 7.
