Proven by research to improve retention

Our research on user feedback and engagement proves that Quitch users experience a considerable increase in learner retention and overall performance. Read our published research here: On becoming Quitch-perts: The perspective of a peer leader during remote learning.

When originally in development, the Quitch app was tested rigorously with both students and teachers. Today, we maintain close connections with customers in a variety of industries to make sure we have clear data on the impact Quitch has on learning outcomes.

The facts

An initial study* into Quitch’s success found that:

  • students who used the app performed 7% better overall, and
  • the implementation of Quitch in a class was associated with a 12% higher student retention rate than a class without Quitch.

A professional association has recently endorsed Quitch and has rolled the app out for all its participants. Upon surveying participants who used Quitch, it was found that:

  • 88% of respondents were interested in using Quitch to study for other subjects, and
  • 78% said it helped them to understand the course content.
