Education is moving toward more playful, authentic, student-centered, and project-based learning. But assessment has not kept up! At the MIT Playful Journey Lab, we work on designing assessment tools and approaches that incorporate play to capture future-ready skills. We aim to uncover the ways play can make assessment more engaging, personalized, and accurate—and we hope to inspire educators to create their own playful assessments.

In order to infuse our ideas with fresh perspectives and bring more people into the playful assessment community, we are excited to host a Playful Assessment Designathon on the day before Connected Learning. It will be open to everyone interested in making assessment more fun and less stressful. Held in an unconference style, we will come with a couple of prompts and challenges related to the Playful Journey Lab’s work in embedded assessment and game-based assessment. And we will open the floor to participants to suggest needs they see in assessment or ideas they would like to explore. We will form groups organically and spend the time designing, prototyping, and imagining a more playful future for assessment!
