Game Over: Assessment as Formative Transitions through and beyond Playful Media
Zuiker, Steven J.
Educational Technology, v56 n3 p48-53 May-Jun 2016
Educational videogames support productive learning by organizing content in relation to meaningful contexts and roles. Videogames can also create new opportunities for understanding and supporting learning when the game ends. This presents formative transitions as a strategy for revealing what players learn through videogames, while also supporting its use beyond videogames, helping educational technologists navigate practical tensions about educational assessment and enduring tensions around learning transfer.
