Toolwire Writing Games

Research Report – Fall 2015 Pilots 


We are pleased to share this ground-breaking research report. In the fall of 2015, fourteen American colleges and universities piloted the Toolwire Writing Games. This report documents faculty and student reactions based on over 530,000 minutes of student usage at institutions including several campuses within the Maricopa, Lone Star, and Colorado Community College systems as well as faculty from the California State University and City University of New York (CUNY) systems.

Few studies have ever provided this level of insight into the implementation of game-based learning at-scale within a foundational first-year course.
