Do Better. Think BIGGER!
Individual Game Play & Competition
Conduct self-assessments to calculate the skill count and in-game contribution value of the STEAM skills learners bring to their team, project and community.
Online Learning Management System
Game play through self-paced and guided instruction
Level 1 Game Play
Play Level 1 of the Community On Demand card game to conduct value-added self-assessments (via pre- and post-testing) and measure student growth from the time they start game play until they complete it.
Assess skills before starting game play to establish a firm benchmark against which to measure growth, knowledge, and cognitive learning skills.
Pre- and post-testing results can be transferred with transcripts for traditional two/four-year undergraduates or can be used as verifiable micro-credentials to suit the more common trends where students enter, stop-out, transfer, return, and take six years or more to graduate.
Individual Game Play
Use the card deck, STEAM skills self-assessment worksheet, and/or STEAM skills assessment game board to play and win Level 1 of the Community On Demand card game.
- Go through the Community On Demand card deck to quickly identify the high demand STEAM skills learners may or may not have
- Separate skills into sets: skills you use, skills you don’t use and skills you don’t have.
- Total up skill count or contribution value to determine the in-game value of each skillset.
- For a more accurate assessment, focus on a project that you recently completed, are currently working on, or will work on in the near future, then begin game play.
