Exam Scores
The simulation occurred each semester between the second and third exams in the course.
If the simulation helped students learn more effectively than traditional lectures and assignments,
simulation participants should have scored higher on the third exam than the students who did
not participate in the simulation. Also, any improvement in scores between the second and third
exams should have been greater among simulation participants than among students who did not
participate.
All exams were graded on a 100 point scale. For the fall 2006 semester, one class
experienced the simulation and two did not. The mean score of the third exam was 6.5 points
higher than that of the second exam for students who participated in the simulation. The mean
score of the third exam was 1.0 points lower than that of the second exam for students who did
not participate in the simulation. The mean score for the third exam was 8.6 points higher for
simulation participants than the mean score for students who did not participate.
