Personnel selection was and still is the ‘Supreme Problem’ of applied psychology.

Game-based and Gamified Assessments: Advances at the Frontier of Psychometrics

International Journal of Selection and Assessment

Anonym 0 1224 Article rating: 4.0

Game-based assessment (GBA) and gamification of assessments have emerged as promising directions for applied measurement. Both merge the science of high-quality psychometric assessment with research from the interdisciplinary field of human-computer interaction and games research.

The gamification of assessment involves the redesign of existing assessments by adding game elements, whereas GBA promises fully formed start-to-finish assessment experiences in which a game is played and won or lost, and the scores produced by that game can be used meaningfully.  Relatively little research is available evaluating gamified assessment or GBA, particularly in applied contexts with rigorous methodology, thus the focus of the present CFP.
