3C Institute CEO Melissa DeRosier wrote a guest blog post for Emerging EdTech, entitled “Game-Based Social Skills Assessments: Making the Play for Better Emotional Health.”
In the post, published on July 20th, Dr. DeRosier discusses the value of effective social skills assessments in the process of helping kids get the skills they need to develop and maintain positive peer relationships, the ways in which game-based assessments provide advantages over traditional assessments, and best practices for game-based social skills assessments.
“Game-based social skills assessments allow data collection that is time- and cost-efficient because teachers need minimal training to administer the assessments, and they can be administered to many children at once. And because games are capable of tracking changes in a child’s behavior over time, they can be used for progress monitoring and evaluation.”
