  • 1. Designing a Game to Reveal an Individual's Ethical Qualities B.J. Schone Qualcomm Incorporated http://


  • Essentially, if we can create an "open" game environment where people are free to make their own decisions, we can observe if they tend to take the (morally) right or wrong path.

Learners would be instructed to play the game as if it were a real-life scenario.B.J. Schone, Qualcomm Incorporated 6. At some point during the simulation, the learner would be accidentally exposed to insider information.* ! * In theory, an ethical person would not use this information for profit. B.J. Schone, Qualcomm Incorporated 7. Observation and Analysis

  • Make note of the learners decisions as they play the game.
  • Did they use the insider information to get ahead of their peers?

  • Follow-up with the learner about their experience.
    • Were they happy with the outcome of the game?
    • Would they change anything they did?
  • Make a decision based on their actions in the game and their responses in the follow-up survey to determine if this is an ethical individual.
