for assessing collaborative problem solving with digital games  
GlassLab works across the game industry to create "innovative games for good" that focus on positive outcomes in the areas of play, education, and nutrition. GlassLab will develop a project that will demonstrate the feasibility of assessing collaborative problem solving within digital games, with a focus on generating data that teachers can use to improve learning. A successful project would support the Program’s goal of demonstrating for the field that it is possible to measure through gaming one of the deeper learning competencies, namely collaboration, not currently included in the Common Core State Standards assessments.
