The GRAND Assessment Framework';this.style.color = '#ff0000';" onMouseOut = "this.innerHTML = 'GRAND Assessment Framework';this.style.color = '#000000';">GRAND Assessment Framework is an iterative assessment framework designed by the University of Alberta GRAND group. The framework starts with the assumption that the group research project involves practical game design, and continues by attempting to ask the most significant over-arching questions.

The framework is intended to help game designers and researchers articulate their points (and what those points are in the first place), create a foundation for further work, and to suggest a set of possible methods for that may be of use during that particular part of the design process. Fill in category sub-questions as best you can, and add your own or skip questions as needed.

        I've tried incorporating these parts into the framework as much as possible. They've mainly been incorporated into the resources sections-DGIntellectual Property:*Time and Money:*Comparison and Competition:*

Perhaps we can start a page of solid design 'how to' resources elsewhere on the wiki)8.3 How will you know if stakeholders are satisfied?
        • *(This is an awesome paper but please describe how it fits in with the design framework. I'm not sure why this is here)8.4 Have you communicated to all interested parties that the project is over?
