The Challenge of Game, Learning, and Assessment Integration
Kristen DiCerbo, Erin Hoffman, Yue Jia, Geneva Haertel, Malcolm Bauer, Robert Mislevy, Shonte Stephenson, Terry Vendlinski, Michael John, John Murray

 The goal of this symposium is to present key aspects of the interplay among games, assessments, and learning based on a large-scale game development project that integrates the digital games, learning, and assessment fields. Using examples from the creation of SimCityEDU as illustration, the following four elements involved in this integration will be discussed:

1.The development of a design framework that addresses the challenge of combining game, learning, and assessment goals (i.e., engagement, growth, and measurement).
2.The use of data tools to uncover unexpected relationships and generate hypotheses about relationships between game play and target knowledge, skills, and attributes.
3.The mechanics of psychometric and statistical modeling required to make inferences from non-traditional assessment data.
4.The studies carried out to ensure the game-based measures assess what they claim to assess.
