Abstract: The purpose of this research is to design and determine the effectiveness of using a Gaming as a Service (GaaS) Research Assessment Toolkit to facilitate and evolve GaaS research, and improve the end user experience. Previous research spanning a twelve-year period from 2006 to 2018 reveals that identified fundamental GaaS problems are being carried over into ongoing and future GaaS research. Each year new research experiments and approaches to solving ongoing GaaS issues are presented by the education and research community. The literature and this research reveal that there is a place for a unified facilitative tool, specifically a research assessment toolkit to facilitate, test, optimize and minimize common GaaS carry over issues, as GaaS evolves. This research introduces a unified, multiplatform and embedded smart application, the GaaS RATK with bundled assessment and optimization tools. The research establishes how the GaaS RATK is beneficial to GaaS and its community.
