TERC's Evaluation Group worked with researchers at MIT's Education Arcade to conduct quantitative analyses of usage data for an online educational game, iCueiCue participants view video clips from archival footage from NBC news, discuss issues and trade "Cue Cards" in social networks, and play concentration, connection, and timeline games. TERC's analysis helped MIT and NBC understand the site user base: who uses the site, the ways they use the site, and the patterns of use that are associated with repeat visits to the site.
