In FY18 the authors developed an education policy game that would reveal the perspectives of different stakeholder groups on current education issues. The larger purpose of this effort was to broaden the scope of the RAND Corporation's game development expertise and supplement the analytic tools available for researchers working in RAND's Education and Labor division. This document describes the game we developed, Let's Improve Tanner High School, and offers some thoughts on game development and improvement based a pilot test of the game conducted with RAND researchers and an operational use of the game with education stakeholders in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
