The Design, Development, and Evaluation of an Evaluative Computer Simulation.
Ehrlich, Lisa R.
This paper discusses evaluation design considerations for a computer based evaluation simulation developed at the University of Iowa College of Medicine in Cardiology to assess the diagnostic skills of primary care physicians and medical students. The simulation developed allows for the assessment of diagnostic skills of physicians in the selection of medical history taking, physical examination, and the ordering of diagnostic laboratory tests. Evaluation criteria used in assessing this simulation are discussed, scoring considerations are explained, and the issues of evaluation validity and reliability are explored. (RAO)
