The Migration Framework and Simulator is a combination of C# framework / library and Unity simulation tool used for studying basic migration patterns across the US. Users interact with the
Unity simulation tool by implementing political policies or adjusting values via sliders, buttons, etc., which will alter the values in the framework. The user can then use the simulation interface to view different estimated population values for categories of people, such as regional differences, education levels, and more.

Evaluating Enjoyment of Idle Game with Currency Rate

This project is to design an idle game and evaluate players’ enjoyment corresponding to
different currency rates. In the game, the player can control a group of heroes against another
set of heroes. In this project, two different currency rates are examined. The player can get
money more easily in a lower currency rate. Two groups of players are formed, and there are 5
players in group A and group B respectively. Players in group A are assigned to play the idle
game with a higher currency rate and players in group B are assigned to play the game with a
lower currency rate. The idle game is created by using Unity and C# language. The feedback
from the players is collected by asking them to finish an 11-question survey. The analysis is
based on the game’s currency rate and survey results. It is concluded that a higher currency rate
lowers players’ enjoyment of the idle game.

Web-Based Programming Grading Assistant: An Investigation of the Role of Students Reviewing Behavior

Description

Paper assessment remains to be an essential formal assessment method in today's classes. However, it is difficult to track student learning behavior on physical papers. This thesis presents a new educational technology—Web Programming Grading Assistant (WPGA). WPGA not only serves

Paper assessment remains to be an essential formal assessment method in today's classes. However, it is difficult to track student learning behavior on physical papers. This thesis presents a new educational technology—Web Programming Grading Assistant (WPGA). WPGA not only serves as a grading system but also a feedback delivery tool that connects paper-based assessments to digital space. I designed a classroom study and collected data from ASU computer science classes. I tracked and modeled students' reviewing and reflecting behaviors based on the use of WPGA. I analyzed students' reviewing efforts, in terms of frequency, timing, and the associations with their academic performances. Results showed that students put extra emphasis in reviewing prior to the exams and the efforts demonstrated the desire to review formal assessments regardless of if they were graded for academic performance or for attendance. In addition, all students paid more attention on reviewing quizzes and exams toward the end of semester.
