iCivics+: Games and Games-Based Assessments to Prepare Students for Better Citizenship
Democracy relies on informed and active participation of citizens. This project team is developing a prototype of a formative assessment component to be added to the GoCivics games, a tablet-based intervention through which middle school students engage in compelling learning activities and simulations to learn standards-based civics content. The formative assessment component will adjust the game play to students' levels of knowledge in real-time and provide feedback to teachers. The games will be integrated within classroom practice and also used out of school. Pilot research in Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the software prototype functions as planned, teachers are able to integrate the games within classroom practice, and students are engaged by the prototype.
