Abstract

Learning is becoming more playful and student-centered, but assessment has not kept up. Too often, when learners are involved in a hands-on, minds-on project, that engagement and enjoyment stops when the assessment comes out. But there is a better way! Embedding assessment techniques into playful learning experiences can make students feel comfortable, elicit authentic evidence of skill mastery, and provide actionable information to teachers. In this session, we’ll review some research on assessment for learning, and playful learning, and discuss how they fit together. We will present examples of embedded assessment tools and game-based assessments to illustrate how playful assessment can look in practice. Finally, we will share some ways that researchers and teachers alike can use the principles of playful assessment in their own work.
