Abstract / Description of output

This paper presents a study designed to explore the effect of feedback on perception of an embodied agent as well as the overall performance and experience of primary school children aged 12-13 carrying out a treasure hunt activity. We use an embodied agent to compare three experimental conditions: no feedback, neutral feedback, and affective feedback. What the students think about the embodied agent and how they feel about the task under the different conditions will be elicited through a questionnaire upon completion of the treasure hunt activity. Moreover, how each condition affects the students’ performance will be analysed.
