Explain that the group play is expected to take approximately 90 minutes. Either allow time in class for the group activity or assign the groups to schedule a time out of class to do the activity.
If this is a college course, it is recommended that you do include the Earned Value activity in the assignment.
Play a demo round of the game in the classroom to help familiarize the students with the game. Answer their questions prior to their going out without you to play the game. As an option, you can provide the students with the Successful Projects contact information and we will gladly answer any questions they may have about playing the game if they want to call us while they are working with their groups.
- Have the groups report back on their learning and turn in their Status Pad notes and Earned Value sheet.
- Optionally, have the groups report on the definition of the steps they landed on in the game play.
- Points or grades may be assessed based upon the team summary and potentially a quiz based on the learning activities.
