Using Immersive Virtual Environments to Create Immersive Science Assessments

iED 2012 Keynote Presentation : http://summit.ImmersiveEducation.org


Our current project, Situated Assessments using Virtual Environments for Science Content and Inquiry (SAVE Science), is an NSF-funded study developing an innovative system for contextualized, authentic assessment of learning in science. In SAVE Science, we are creating, implementing, and evaluating a series of digital game-based modules for assessing both science content and inquiry in the middle grades. The modules, based in an immersive virtual environment (IVE), are designed to enable students to perform a series of assessment tasks that provide data about how well they have mastered and can apply content knowledge and inquiry skills taught via their regular classroom curricula. We hypothesize that through careful design of the virtual environment-based assessments, data can be collected and analyzed to produce meaningful and accurate inferences about student learning that provide additional insights about student understanding beyond what is possible from more traditional assessments.
