Abstract— Players’ gameplay action-decision data can be used towards profiling as serious games analytics. The insights gained can help support the decisions for performance improvement and as ‘prescriptions’ for training – e.g., diagnosing who should receive training, how much training will be given, informing the design of the game, and determining the contents for inclusion and exclusion. Data-driven training prescription can help learning organizations save money by mitigating unnecessary training to reduce costs. Players’ learning performance in games can be measured in lieu of their behaviors traced in situ the training environment. Novice players’ actiondecision data can first be converted into Course of Actions (COAs) before pairwise similarity comparison against that of the expert(s) to reveal how similar they are to the training goal, or expert/model answer. We identified three Gameplay ActionDecision (GAD) profiles from these gameplay action-decision data and applied them as diagnostics towards prescriptive training.
