Evidence-Centered Design and Game-Based Assessment: Experience from GlassLab Robert Mislevy, ETSEvidence-centered design (ECD) is a principled framework for the design, implementation, and analysis of educational assessments.  This talk provides an overview of ECD, and shows how the framework can be applied to the context of game-based assessments.  The ideas are illustrated with experience from GlassLab, a project supported by the Gates and MacArthur Foundations and headed by the Institute of Play, with collaborators Electronic Arts, Educational Testing Service, and Pearson.
Robert Mislevy is the Frederic M. Lord Chair in Measurement and Statistics at ETS.  He was previously Professor of Measurement and Statistics at the University of Maryland, and Affiliate Professor of Survey Methods and of Second Language Acquisition.  His research applies developments in technology, statistics, and cognitive science to practical problems in assessment. He developed the ‘plausible values’ methodology for the National Assessment of Educational Progress, helped Cisco Systems develop simulation-based assessments of network engineering, and, with Linda Steinberg and Russell Almond, created an “evidence centered” assessment design framework.  He is currently a senior advisor for the GlassLab project on game-based assessment.  Prof. Mislevy’s publications include Automated Scoring of Complex Tasks in Computer-Based Testing and the chapter “Cognitive Psychology” in Educational Measurement.  He has received career contributions awards from AERA and NCME, and won NCME’s Award for Technical Contributions to Measurement three times. He is a past-president of the Psychometric Society and a member of the National Academy of Education.
