I am currently using Minecraft as an assesment tool in maths, getting my students to "tell me everything they know about fractions, decimals and ratios. Well! the focus, problem solving, sharing ideas has been amazing!! Not as quick to complete and is going to be a little different marking and recording against NS but incredibly rich maths and..

Has anyone else done this and have suggestions to guide, mark etc.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

    Great also to hear what others are doing. We reviewed everything we had covered in the unit, listing everything to remind us all what we should have learnt. I put some time limits on and ran some micro teaching spots to help those who needed extra reviewing. At the moment I have seen some amazing work and problem solving but the enthusiasn is heading us into overtine which will be a delemma. Mostly seeing visual representations of fractions, fraction walls and quests where you need to answer questions to progress further. Will post some screen shots when all finished.
