What's not working?
How we learn
Enable data capture
Pick up and play (assessed on knowledge rather than how fast/well you can play
Games that produce deeper cognitive processing are more strategic complex games such as WOW, Civ, Sim City
Create a scenario where the user is involved enough to dispel 'response bias' - strong narratives and engaging scenarios
Did the player complete the lesson or pass the test.
How did the player choose his or her actions? Did he or she change their mind? If so, at what point? And so on.
Most of us know intrinsically what to do with a puzzle
Use of games for assessment is relatively new.
Matching the data against existing systems to validate the meaning is important.
Avoid designing a system that requires normal 'gamer behaviour' to ensure you do not alienate users.
Gamer mindset more open to risk - keep this in mind when designing
Exploration of incorrect responses out of curiosity
Men and women play games differently

Want a Challenge
How do they access content
How are they assessed
If you are the client, know these things too!
Know your client!

University of Colorado Denver Business School study that ‘found those trained on video games do their jobs better, have higher skills and retain information longer than workers learning in less interactive, more passive environments.’
Stizzman & Ely, 2010: declarative knowledge was 11% higher for trainees taught with simulation games than a comparison group; procedural knowledge was 14% higher; retention was 9% higher; and self-efficacy was 20% higher.
Inclusion of off-the-shelf business simulation games in Business Management and Economics courses for undergraduates increased comparative mean test scores by 10-20%. (Richard Blunt)
Public Transit System in Montreal (STM) Canada used a bespoke 3D simulation game for health and safety training. Average test results increased from 62% to 92%, while costs dropped from $763 per employee to $300; training time drop by 50% (Caspian/MOD)
Participants in an inventory management course who used a simulation scored a mean of 4.23 out of 5 in post tests, as compared with 2.89 for those who did not
