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

International Journal of Selection and Assessment

Matthew Haynes 0 312 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.

Call for Papers on the COVID-19 Pandemic with a Rapid Review Process

Matthew Haynes 0 313 Article rating: No rating

The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally altered many aspects of work and nonwork life, with both short-term and likely long-term effects. There are many potential ways that the science of applied psychology can contribute to the public good and enhance our understanding of how COVID-19 has affected employees, leaders, teams, families, organizations as well as the communities in which these groups reside in. The faster that we can bring our scientific evidence to others, the more we can help.

The Journal of Applied Psychology (http://www.apa.org/pubs/journals/apl/) invites quantitative and qualitative papers directly related to the pandemic. To be clear, the goal of this Call for Papers is to understand work- and employment-related phenomena associated with the COVID- 19 pandemic. Therefore, although data collected prior to COVID-19 could be used for comparison or linkage purposes, we are interested in research that directly informs our scientific understanding of the COVID-19 experience. To ensure relevance beyond COVID-19, we expect all submissions to discuss the implications of their findings beyond the current crisis in some manner.
