This Real World, Real Science workstream, led by the AAALab at Stanford University, focuses on developing brief online, choice-based assessment (CBA) games that target students’ data literacy, data communication skills, and dispositions. The goal of these CBAs is to give students opportunities to demonstrate disciplinary practices and strategies for learning and communicating new content. These CBAs are used as part of the summative project evaluation being conducted by EDC.
In late 2018, we implemented the initial CBA, Storylet, with Maine LabVenture students. Storylet targets students’ ability to interpret data visualizations, as well as their disposition to use data as a form of communication. Our latest CBA, Datalet, targets students’ data literacy skills as outlined in LabVenture’s target learning outcomes. Both CBAs have been developed and piloted with students and are currently in the implementation phase.
