This is the tidy and bare-bones version of the initial questions framework from the 2012-13 GRAND Assessment Framework . The framework starts with the assumption that the group research project involves practical game design, and continues by asking the most significant over-arching questions.


  • Who are the stakeholders in this project?
    • ethical
    • financial
    • institutinal
    • personal


  • What are the minimum conditions for this project to be considered practical, ethical, and academic research from the perspective of external sponsoring stakeholders?
    • What needs to be documented?
    • What ethical standards guide the project?
    • What needs to be practically implemented?(e.g. does game design research imply building complete, original digital games from the ground up?)
    • What deadlines need to be met?
    • Who can be expected to contribute to the project?
