Do Gaming Experience and Prior Knowledge Matter When Learning with a Gamified ITS?

Faiza Tahir, Antonija Mitrovic, Valerie Sotardi
2021 2021 International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies (ICALT)  
This paper investigates the causal effects of gamification on student learning outcomes, and the role of the students' background knowledge and prior gamification experience in the relationship.  ...  Although we found no evidence of improvement in learning outcomes of the gamified group, the low prior knowledge students who received badges had higher time-on-task, made more attempts on problems and  ...  In the second path, the influenced learning behavior moderates the relationship between learning content and learning outcomes.  ...

To ensure that we measured the most appropriate outcomes we reviewed the literature on potential outcome domains and measures and consulted widely with patients, tutors and experts.  ...  At 12 months there was no difference between treatment groups in our primary outcome of pain-related disability [difference –1.0 intervention vs. control, 95% confidence interval (CI) –4.9 to 3.0].  ...  We found that the COPERS course did not improve how pain affected people's function, the outcome that we were most interested in.  ...
