The CSI: Agent on a Mission is a single-player mobile game developed for the Introductory Statistics course.
The game empowers students to apply their statistical knowledge acquired from class by immersing them in an "Agent on a Mission" game setting. Students take on the role of a CSI agent and are presented with data at the start of the game, which they analyse and interpret as part of the task to solve a country’s statistical problems. Upon completing a task successfully, they can proceed to another task of greater difficulty.
The game will be played primarily outside of class time. The feedback during and after the game allows students to review their performance. The instructor also blends in-class activity with the app through innovative use of physical passports as a means of tracking student progression.
