Developing Simulated Learning Experiences

I'm curious if anyone out there uses the C-CEI for simulations.  I would like to adopt this for our simulation lab but am curious how others use the tool.

Do you use it for high stakes simulations only or all simulations?  Do you like the evaluation to a grade, or students having to re-take the simulation?  Do you use it in replacement of your rubrics?  Is it for student feedback of performance? 

Any thoughts on this would be helpful to me.

Thank you,

Hi Jenn,

We are looking at different tools - leaning towards Sweeny-Clark.  Have you looked at that?

Hi Diana, we have been using Sweeney Clark with simulation for several years. The upside is that everyone pretty much understands Benner's Novice to expert work and it is a thread in our curriculum., it is fast and relatively easy to use.

 Last December we asked faculty to watch 3 short videos and then using SC we asked them to rate the student performance. To our surprise/disappointment there was much disagreement and many people chose N/A despite there being - what we thought - was clear indication of the behaviour.  We are still working through the data and will be looking at what this means for us.
