New startup, BenchPrep, designed a “gamified” experience for formative assessments.  Namely, their new GRE ScoreQuest app for iOS that provides practice quizzes for the GRE in a gamified environment.  It’s now easy to see how to use the principles of gaming to provide more intrinsic motivation in an online/asynchronous format.  Even Blackboard has tools that provide “agency” with their adaptive release tools to help gamify the classroom.
