A new application programming interface (API) is designed to enable education developers to introduce scoring analytics into simulations, games and other open-ended assessment items and digital learning objects. The API toolkit, developed by metacog, is intended to be added to programs used by educators to examine the work and thought processes done by students as they interact with digital lessons and assessments. “Our goal with metacog’s scoring service API is to enable a new generation of instruction and assessment products where students create responses instead of merely picking them,” said Owen Lawlor, the company’s chief digital officer.
