Using Learning Analytics in Games for Learning for the Evaluation of Key Competences for the 21st Century

We will apply learning analytics as the key that can unlock the full potential of games as an alternative medium of assessment. Learning analytics applies data science techniques to educational data, in order to make inferences and improve learning. The assessment will not only focus on content knowledge, but also on cognitive skills (like creativity or spatial reasoning) and behavioral patterns (like persistence or unproductive behaviors) that have been reported as key for human and societal development in the coming years.
