The Simulation Learning Barometer is a benchmarking and monitoring device for measuring changes in student perceptions of learning outcomes. The barometer also includes problem-based questions designed to measure cognitive change for a number of commonly used simulations. The barometer can also be used to monitor changes in learning outcomes following adjustments to pedagogy (e.g. assessment, learning resources).
The Simulation Learning Barometer consists of a pre-simulation survey and a post-simulation survey, however some survey items would be suitable for use at regular intervals to monitor learning engagement and outcomes throughout a simulation. The post-simulation survey includes a number of items and takes about 20 minutes to complete.
