In this paper, a new approach of integrating serious games in intelligent tutoring systems is proposed. The objective is to propose new evaluation methods to increase learner’s motivation and encourage them to learn. The idea is to replace standard evaluation process with Serious Games that are generated automatically from a game base. Thus, succeeding evaluations depends on completing the game successfully.
