Independent Research and Evaluation on GlassLab Games and Assessments In summer 2012, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, in cooperation with the MacArthur Foundation, made a significant investment to establish the Games Learning and Assessment Lab (GlassLab), which includes top game developers, assessment experts, and researchers from multiple fields and disciplines.
