Assessment for Applied Learning Forum – Simulation-based assessment

July 1, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


The Assessment for Applied Learning Forum is pleased to bring you its summer programme of events during June and July.

Simulation-based assessment
Thursday 1 July, 12-1pm

Led by Jeanette Baker, BTE (Management) and Jayne Revill, BTE (Finance, Accounting & Business Systems)

Using the Markstrat simulation, students manage their own companies as a team in a dynamic market environment providing a technological product to customer segments whose needs change.  They also need to respond to competitor pressures whilst identifying and using relevant and current data to inform their strategic decision making.

The assessment is not dependent on how successful their company is in the simulation/market place but their individual reflection on the experience and the understanding, application and interpretation of supporting theories behind their decision making.

This session will explore how we used the simulation, the impact on student attainment, the lessons we learnt (including the impact of COVID) and the further development plans we have.
