Stealth Assessment: Measuring and Supporting Learning in Video Games
by Valerie Shute, Matthew Ventura
Publisher: The MIT Press 2013
Number of pages: 102

Embedding assessments within games provides a way to monitor players' progress toward targeted competencies and to use that information to support learning.
