Chess Education Research

The amount of evidence that chess is good for the development of children is overwhelming. An often used approach is replacing a math hour with a chess lesson. Investigations show that by this method both math and other (language, concentration, creativity, etc.) skills improve, form the chess players versus non chess players.

In these pages articals about chess benefits and chess studies are gathered.

The following articals will be translated and later added to these pages:
Schaken en CITO-toets resultaten
