Gamifying Current Resources – A Way to Engage Learners to a Remote Learning

Against the background of a lack of research and pedagogical awareness of how testing results – marks – differ depending on the testing instrument type, this experience is aimed at exploring students’ responses – during the Quarantine – to two distinct types of assessment platforms available: traditional, paper-and-pen testing instrument, and digital, computer-based testing resources.

Subjects in the research were seventh grade students at Colegio Patricio Lynch in Vaparaiso. Data gathering was conducted by means of the application of a questionnaire, and the two types of assessment instrument. Data therefore collected and key results and findings were summarized and categorized. After applying the action, it was found that students’ performance was noticeable higher when test using a digital testing instrument.

The findings have implied crucial pedagogical and research insights, particularly towards a better understanding of and reform of testing materials.
