Here are some ways you can assess student learning from American Revolution Timeline game play:

  • Use questioning techniques to push student thinking. Why did certain events occur after other events? How might the American Revolution have unfolded differently if events were in a different order?
  • Have students take the game quiz. They can re-take the quiz as many times as they want to improve their score. You can also have them take the quiz before playing the game and compare it their score after game play.
  • Challenge students to create their own interactive timeline. Provide a set of index cards and have students write one event on each card, then trade card sets with a partner and try to put the events in order.
