Putting Theory-Oriented Evaluation into Practice: A Logic Model Approach for Evaluating SIMGAME
Hense, Jan; Kriz, Willy Christian; Wolfe, Joseph
Simulation & Gaming, v40 n1 p110-133 2009
Evaluations of gaming simulations and business games as teaching devices are typically end-state driven. This emphasis fails to detect how the simulation being evaluated does or does not bring about its desired consequences. This paper advances the use of a logic model approach, which possesses a holistic perspective that aims at including all elements associated with the situation created by a game. The use of the logic model approach is illustrated as applied to SIMGAME, a board game created for secondary school level business education in six European Union countries. (Contains 3 figures, 4 tables, and 1 note.)
