Abstract: This study examined the cognitive effects of chess instruction on thirty-eight students at risk for academic failure. The analysis found no significant differences between the cognitive changes registered by the treatment group and the control group. However, for the chess group, participant chess rating was significantly correlated with TONI-3 scores. The findings indicated that student acquisition of high chess ratings contributes to the improvement of cognitive skills rather than student mere exposure to chess.
