AbstractA growing body of research underscores the need to prepare students socially—as well as academically—to ensure successful transition to middle school and foster subsequent academic success. This project team is developing a prototype of a series of web-based interactive games to help students practice and learn needed social skills to successfully transition from grade school to middle school. The games will include a formative assessment software engine to adapt to students' levels of social skills. The games will supplement fifth grade classroom learning. Pilot research in Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the software prototype functions as planned and teachers and students are engaged by the prototype.
