Gamification helps the willingness of a student to study and learn in a more enjoyable and interactive way. 67% of students reported that a gamified course was more motivating than their traditional curriculum. Essentially, gamification is the application of game design and mechanics in non-game settings and contexts. This includes a wide variety of methods such as leaderboards, point systems, reward systems, and more. A major hurdle is getting personally interested in learning. Many of us are not self-motivated enough to study just for the satisfaction of gaining knowledge and a good grade.

This is the instruction that’s guaranteed for all students to receive.Our universal tier instruction typically focuses on grade level standards for our state and school. Schools use universal screening data in order to identify the effectiveness of their universal tier. There are two primary questions that schools ask as they’re doing this work. The first is if 80% of their students are successful. Schools typically use 80% criteria because they have resources to intervene with about 20% of students. If they have more than 20% of students who need additional intervention in order to be successful, their resources may be strained and they may not be able to provide intervention to all of those students.
