Helen Teague's insight:

Game-based SSA can incorporate “stealth assessment”—that is, the game collects data without the child realizing it.

Personality based Gamification: How different personalities perceive Gamification pdf

Helen Teague's insight:

The is a research in progress study

Major Points: 

*shows that introverts prefer badges more than extroverts
*low agreeable personalities would prefer a progress mechanic for feedback."
*The introversion finding is consistent with existing research showing that introverts on the internet behave in a more extroverted way while extroverts maintain their real personality in offline communications (Amichai-Hamburger, Wainapel & Fox 2002, Orchard, Fullwood 2010).
*Extroverts found rewards that can be demonstrated more playful which makes sense given their extroverted personality.
*This finding is in line with the theme of this implementation where the leaderboards had a negative overall perception.
*Highly agreeable personalities found badges to be more playful then those with
lower levels of agreeableness.
*students were not interested in competing publicly through a visible format of a leaderboard and perceived this to be de-motivating
