WORK PACKAGES

WP 6. Initial validation and analysis of the first prototype

• Purpose of the stage: to validate the primary results gained during execution of the initial field trial at the previous stage and to perform analysis of the effectiveness of the achieved adaptivity.
• Characteristics of the research work: the researcher is going to validate the raw results obtained for the initial field trial and to analyze them in order to obtain conclusions about the effectiveness of adaptivity implemented within the adaptive player-centric game based on the adaptivity framework developed at the previous stages. In order to perform the final analysis, the fellow will be assisted by the scientist in charge Dr. Ibáñez, who teaches statistics and operative research for more than a decade at the University of Alicante. The intermediate analysis results are to be presented in scientific articles and published in proceedings of international conferences and in journals dedicated to the research areas.
• Main objectives of the stage: based on primary data from the initial field trial, to obtain results about validation of adaptation methods and evaluation of the effectiveness of adaptivity by means of appropriate metrics and, next, to develop and present adequately the intermediate analysis results.

WP 9. Validation of the final prototype and final analysis

• Purpose of the stage: to validate the results gained during execution of the final field trial and to perform final analysis of the effectiveness of the achieved adaptivity.
• Characteristics of the research work: the researcher will validate the raw results from the final field trial and to analyze them in order to obtain, present and publish final conclusions about the effectiveness of adaptivity implemented within the second prototype of the adaptive player-centric serious video game.
• Main objectives of the stage: based on data from the second field trial, to obtain results about final validation of adaptation methods and evaluation of the effectiveness of adaptivity and to develop and present adequately the final analysis results.
