Effects of a Simulation on Exam Scores and Teaching Evaluation Results
Unformatted Document Text:  In the spring 2007 semester, the instructor taught one international relations class of twelve students, which participated in the simulation. The mean scores on the second and third exams were 76.4 and 68.5, respectively. In the fall 2007 semester, two classes experienced the simulation and one did not. The mean score of the third exam was 1.4 points lower than that of the second exam for simulation participants. The mean score of the third exam was 4.9 points higher than that of the second exam for students who did not participate in the simulation. The mean score of the third exam for simulation participants was 4.5 points lower than that for students who did not participate in the simulation.

In the spring 2007 semester, the instructor taught one international relations class of
twelve students, which participated in the simulation. The mean scores on the second and third
exams were 76.4 and 68.5, respectively.
In the fall 2007 semester, two classes experienced the simulation and one did not. The
mean score of the third exam was 1.4 points lower than that of the second exam for simulation
participants. The mean score of the third exam was 4.9 points higher than that of the second
exam for students who did not participate in the simulation. The mean score of the third exam
for simulation participants was 4.5 points lower than that for students who did not participate in
the simulation.

Figure 2: Exam Scores for Fall 2007 Semester
When data for the fall 2006, spring 2007, and fall 2007 semesters are aggregated,
simulation participants scored slightly higher on the third exam then they did on the second
exam, with a change in mean scores of 0.6 points. A similar effect occurred among students who
did not participate in the simulation – the change in mean scores was 0.5 points. Simulation
