This project assesses the educational effectiveness of using reality based roleplaying games versus games based in fiction. It studies the role of educational engagement and MBTI types in game pedagogy. To properly study this, the previous roleplaying game was updated, revised and [run] at WPI. Data was then analyzed and compared with past results. Finally, this project establishes clear guidelines on how to properly administer a game and collect data for future research.
