Beyond Badges & Points: Gameful Assessment Systems for Engagement in Formal Education

This symposium brings together a range of gameful assessment designs at different levels of formal education to explore how gameful design might lead to greater student engagement and improved learning outcomes. We use the term “gameful assessment” to describe assessment frameworks or approaches that employ game design principles to foster student motivation and learning. The symposium examines systems in both K-12 and higher education, and considers both the conceptual underpinnings of these systems and the design space of current tools developed to make it easier for instructors to implement gameful grading systems. Data related to the success (and struggles) of each system will be discussed.
