The first evaluation of player behaviour in ARTournament is done (at least “done” as far as Johnny’s Master’s Thesis is involved
We always hoped, that by playing, the player would also gain some knowledge about art history … and so it may seem! In the chart below we have plotted the percentage of correct answers per player (as indicated with the player’s self-chosen nickname) over five equally long partitions of the number of rounds each player played ARTournament on level 5 “Expert Caravaggio”. The baseline is that in every round the player is shown four paintings, one of them being the correct answer … that means, 25% would be the result for continuous guessing. So, we might conclude, that the players got better, the longer they played ARTournament … that’s great! Don’t mind the occasional drop in the final fifth of the rounds, each of these players have reached the goal of the level long before and still continued to play … so, perhaps they’ve just lost a little concentration … remember, it’s still a game, a casual game to be exact
And, of course, huge congratulations to “Frosch” … you seem to be the true Caravaggio expert (no wonder that you are the only one amongst us, who got this also officially certified
So, keep on playing, the time is definitely not wasted … and we have added a couple of new levels already!
By the way, the final version of Johnny’s Master’s Thesis on design, implementation, and evaluation of ARTournament is available in our publications section …
