The Impact of Gamification in Web Based Homework
Goehle, Geoff; Wagaman, John
PRIMUS, v26 n6 p557-569 2016
This paper concerns the impact and reception of gamification elements that were added to the online homework system "WeBWorK." After performing two studies, we found that the students felt that the gamification system rewarded them for their effort. However, we did not find any indication that gamification elements improved student performance when compared with a control group.
