Playful Assessment Roundtable: Current Practices and Future Directions

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We believe that assessments should be playful, engaging, and authentic. If learning is fun, as it can and should be, then there’s no reason the fun should stop for assessment. The high level goal of this session is to bring educators, researchers, and learning designers together to share their visions for playful assessment. We will start the session by sharing examples of playful assessment, both digital and non-digital, to frame what we mean by playful assessment. Then we will have participants share their current playful practices, tools, and designs that relate to assessment. Through a roundtable discussion format, we aim to garner interest in this emerging field and build the playful assessment community.
