Abstract

This paper presents the results of an investigation into the use of a video game in the middle school classroom as a learning tool to reinforce knowledge and skills. The study, which included a control and treatment group, yielded mixed results. However, it is noted that the game did have positive effects on retention of knowledge for one of the two investigated subject content areas and on general student motivation to study facts.
