Simulations Evaluation

Your Training Edge

Now that you’ve decided to use simulations in your programs, let’s look at some best practices for evaluating simulation results. A well-designed simulation will only be effective if you are able to evaluate the results – and pass those results on to the participants. As we’ve discussed, immediate feedback is a benefit of simulations, so the evaluation of final outcomes should be fairly immediate so that participants can quickly apply what they’ve learned.
