They evaluate games using the Institute’s Business Learning Games Assessment Rubric, systematically looking at a number of factors including:
- The game’s purpose – its “learning objective”
- Alignment of the learning objective with the target audience
- The quality and value of the learning(s)
- Learning Delivery (how well the game delivers on its learning objective)
- Framing / fictional context
- Game Mechanics
- Look & Feel
- The context within which the game is played – its “ecosystem”
- Overall Coherence
