While the overall goal of the game is to “win,” the instructional attributes of the practices and scheduled contests are intended to develop skills of the students in order to win. The collateral focus of assessment, in addition to winning, for Little League and other sports for children (like American Youth Soccer Organization soccer for 6-year-olds) is to evaluate students’ performance and help them improve their performance. In the assessment trade, this is called formative assessment or evaluation (see, for example, Baker & Alkin, 1973; Black & Wiliam, 1998; Scriven, 1967).

The assessment can be integrated into the game to provide guidance and feedback on the player’s progress to attainment of learning objectives. The game may be used as an assessment task for some other educational intervention including a different game or noncomputational type of instruction. Or proficiency in a game may be assessed by means not integrated in the game itself because of feasibility or cost. We will consider all of these approaches. In all, the concern about what is to be learned and measured and how the interpretations guide other decisions are central precepts.

Another approach to assessment that emphasizes the importance of domain represen­ tation is evidence-centered design (ECD). ECD shares with MBA its emphasis on the importance of being explicit about what is to be measured (Mislevy, Steinberg, Breyer, Almond, & Johnson, 1999). , what set of knowledge skills or attributes are assessed). , 2002).
