Abstract

This report, prepared for the creators of ASSISTments, addresses the concept of improved learning from educational computer games and describes the methods used to incorporate these games into the ASSISTments learning system. These methods include searching for and selecting the most relevant existing educational computer games, constructing new problem templates for use within the ASSISTments system, and creating custom learning experiences with and without educational games for experimentation.
