Problem-Solving Assessment in Games and Simulation Environments
ByRichard E. Mayer
Pages 18

What are the cognitive consequences of interacting with a computer-based simulation or game? In particular, can people improve their problem-solving skills by interacting with a computer-based simulation or game? In addition, what are the features of simulations and games that lead to improved problem-solving transfer? These fundamental questions about the potential educational benefits of games and simulations cannot be addressed without developing appropriate measures of problem-solving skill.
