Considerations for Including Simulation Assessments in Performance-based Exams
Wednesday, March 29 at 1 pm – 2pm ET
This webinar will provide an overview of how simulations can expand and enhance current assessment practices by including practical “real-life” assessments, such as in-person performance-based examination (for example, human volunteers/ evaluators) and other simulation examination techniques.
Attendees will learn considerations for determining if a simulation exam is a good fit, and an overview of what is involved in shifting to this type of assessment.
