Abstract:Self-regulated learning (SRL) is important to deal with societal developments and contributes to the transition from primary to secondary education. SRL skills in this study involve behavioral activity, cognitive (learning), metacognitive and motivational strategies, performed before, during and after a learning activity. Not all Dutch students are good self-regulated learners, as suggested by the almost half million euro spend by Enschede. This study aimed to train Dutch sixth grade students SRL skills, which must involve motivational tasks. A prototype for a serious game was developed, since serious games are intrinsically motivating. A formative evaluation was performed to increase the appeal with the design, learning, and motivation to play. A qualitative questionnaire was developed to get insight in the opinion of the target group about the three themes (appeal, learning and motivation). This opinion was reformulated in improvement statements. This study resulted in a prototype that can be further developed. It is recommended to continue the evaluation during this development and to test the effectiveness. These findings can contribute to knowledge on the use of serious games to train SRL and if it increases SRL skills, it can be used to prepare students for a changing society and secondary education.
