In this paper, the authors explore how gamification can be applied in learning the normalization concepts in database. Modeling the concept with game challenges improves the learning. The model consists of different levels; each level corresponding to a normal form. The levels are further divided into stages. On crossing each stage, the student (player) would get points depending on the difficulty level. The gamification provides positive effect; however, the effects are greatly dependent on the context in which the gamification is being implemented, as well as on the users using it.
