Where the Rubber Meets the (Cross)Road: Insights into Game-Based Learning & Assessment Design
V. Elizabeth Owen, Kristen E. DiCerbo, Michelle M. Riconscente, Elizabeth Kline, Erin Hoffman, G. Tanner Jackson, Maria Bertling

Human agency—the power to shape a course of action (Bandura, 2006)—has long been held central to empowered, self-regulated learning (Pintrich, 1999). Implicit in this choice-centered learning is the ability to take different pathways towards a solution, a key affordance of games as a medium to deliver engaging, effective educational experiences (c.f. Salen & Zimmerman, 2004). The work in this symposium reflects a holistic design goal in game-based learning—integrated learning and assessment which can support multiple pathways to learning. This integrated design is discussed from four perspectives: teacher-facing UI design, learning game design (integrated instruction & assessment), psychometric assessment analysis, and exploratory data mining of unexpected learner patterns.
