Abstract

The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness of a Web-based quiz-game-like formative assessment on student learning in middle school Ecology curriculum. We use a formative assessment module with various game-like strategies online, named “GAM-WATA” (Game Assessment Module of the WATA system). The strategies include prune and call-in which allow students to have the opportunity to succeed in taking teacher-made tests. The sample consisted of 194 students in the seventh grade and adopts in a single group. Students have the opportunities to take the GAM-WATA to practice test items. The study collects and analyzes quantitative data, including pre-test and post-test achievement. Through the paired t-test analyses, the major findings generally confirm the effectiveness of GAM-WATA for students learning. There is a significant difference and large effect size in students’ learning effectiveness, especially for students with low-level prior knowledge.
