Educational and serious games can facilitate a wide variety of transformations in learners, which can in turn impact both peers and educators in the learner’s environment. These transformations may include changes in knowledge and behaviors to changes in beliefs, attitudes and values. Despite a substantial body of innovations around assessment of game-based learning, most frequently-used evaluation methods are limited to simple knowledge-gain measures. How do we leverage the power of game-based learning and assessment, while responding to demands for evidence of effectiveness and validity? This Panel brings their diverse experiences in game-based assessment to a group discussion, helping game developers think beyond traditional assessments, with examples of more innovative ways to measure impact. After a short discussion from the Panel, the Panel will play The Assessment Game, proposing a variety of assessment strategies for randomly assigned content, audiences and transformations generated through audience participation.
