1. Getting Started Top
  • Instructors should direct students to choose specific job interviews. GoVenture provides students the ability to play all the job interviews that are included in the software. A student can only play one job interview at a time, and can quit and restart the same job interview or a different job interview at any time.
  • Instructors can play GoVenture as a student by clicking the PLAY button. It is highly recommended that instructors play GoVenture for a few minutes to experience the options available in the program.
  • To find out more about GoVenture Interview and other GoVenture educational games and simulations, visit www.GoVenture.net
2. Learning How to Play Top
  • GoVenture Job Interview is easy to play.
  • There is no User Guide.
3. Learner Managed versus Instructor Managed Top

See the blue tile with your profile information to determine what type of ONLINE subscription you have.

Learner Managed

  • Learner Managed subscriptions are normally assigned to Colleges, Nonprofits, and Businesses.
  • Students must create and use their own personal accounts to log in and play GoVenture.

Instructor Managed

  • Instructor Managed subscriptions are normally assigned to K-12 schools, where student anonymity is important and student accounts need to be managed by an instructor.
  • This type of subscription does not require students to create full accounts on GoVenture. This means they do not have to disclose their personal information. Students only need to use their names (or student IDs) and passwords to play GoVenture.
  • Students will be prompted to enter your GROUP number and their name (or student ID) and password.
  • Each student will then be given a unique GROUP number assigned to them. This student GROUP number will be your GROUP number but with a few digits added to the end (such as 001, 002, etc.). The student will be directed to write down this number. When the student wants to log in to Goventure again later, the student will need to enter their personal GROUP number (with the extra digits) and password.
  • If a student forgets their personal GROUP number, you can retrieve it using the VIEW STUDENTS option in the ACTIONS tile.
  • If a student forgets their password, you can reset it using the RESET STUDENT PASSWORD option in the ACTIONS tile.
4. Saving and Resuming Progress Top
  • Student simulation progress is automatically saved online. Students can quit and resume their job interviews at any time. Students will automatically continue from where they stopped playing.
  • Only the current job interview will be saved. If a student quits a job interview before it is completed and restarts a new job interview, only the new job interview progress will be saved.
  • Once a student completes a job interview, the results are saved on the instructor website.
  • A student can restart any job interview, even if it has already been completed. The latest results will overwrite the older results.
5. Restarting a Job Interview Top
  • A student can only play one job interview at a time.
  • A student can restart any job interview, even if it has already been completed. The latest results will overwrite the older results.
6. Removing and Reassigning Student Accounts Top
  • Use the REMOVE STUDENT option in the ACTIONS tile to completely remove a student from a GROUP and delete all progress and data for that student.
  • If you have an INSTRUCTOR MANAGED account (as shown in the blue tile with your profile information), using REMOVE STUDENT will release the student account in use (from your maximum Student Accounts allowed), allowing you to reassign the account to another student.
7. Time Required Top
  • The average amount of time it takes to thoughtfully complete one job interview ranges from 15 to 30 minutes.
8. Performance Evaluation and Grading Top
  • When a student completes a job interview, performance results are automatically saved to the instructor website.
  • If a student restarts a completed interview, the latest performance results will overwrite the old performance results.
  • For each job interview a student completes, performance is scored based on three activities: Clothing, Transportation, and Interview Answers. The student is also assessed on whether or not they were awarded the job.
  • It is up to individual instructors how to use the above metrics for student grading.
9. Competition and Awards Top
  • GoVenture Job Interview does not have head-to-head multiplayer competition, but you can hold competitions by comparing student performance results.
  • The GROUPS feature allows you to group students together for smaller or larger competitions, and you can have groups compete against groups. For example, a group of 5 students (combined results) can compete against another group of 5 students, thereby motivating the students within the same group to help each other. Or, you can have a group of 10 students individually compete against each other, while collectively competing against a different group of 10 students.
  • Awarding prizes to the winners is always a great motivator. Prizes should be announced at the beginning of the competition, and could be simple inexpensive gifts or even extra marks.
