  2. 2. 1 Assessment is only onepart of a gameful design
  3. 3. • Modelling the learning domain (skilltrees, unlocks, etc.)• Co-structuring the learning space (forscaffolded, self-directed learning)• Transporting the narrative (via naming,visual design, structure)• Reframing situation as »gaming«Assessment as systemic part
  4. 4. 2It is mainly accumulativegrading & feedback so far
  5. 5. • Start at 0 points/grade F• Amount & quality of tasks > points,point amounts = levels/grades• (Each level/grade change requiresprogressively more points)• (Learners can choose between manytasks, redo tasks)accumulative grading
  6. 6. • Sense of progress and current state• Match of skill & challenge• Declining grading = loss framing• Averaging grading = continuedpunishment for early failure• Evaluative grading of every activity =performance, not mastery/effort framingWhy accumulative grading?
  7. 7. • Timely & frequent• Juicy & varied• Non-controlling• Informative• current action & improvement• current state & future pathsfeedback
  8. 8. • Goal-setting (via levels, badges, ...)• Self-directed learning > autonomy• Purely formative assessment• Full transparency• Competition & collaborationFurther characteristics
