Game Types – Quality

Question 4: What is your opinion of the quality of these game types?

Again, since there is little value in having teachers, or their mothers, rate the resources which they themselves have developed, the Self-Designed Games category has been left out in favor of those adapted from ESL resource books. In fact such games took top honors on the question of quality. Whether teachers are actually using such games in the classroom is not clear. Rather this ranking could indicate an uncritical belief in our profession that, being previously vetted by major publishers in the field, such resources should be of high quality. My own experience of such resource books is that many of the game-like resources are either Old Standards in new clothes or not very effective at all.

Rated on a ten-point Likert scale ranging from Low Quality [1] to High Quality [10]
