simulation, high-stakes evaluation, formative assessment, summative evaluation, standard, guideline
In a simulation-based experience, formative assessment or summative evaluation can be used. Formative assessment fosters personal and professional development and helps participants progress toward achieving objectives. Summative evaluation focuses on measurement of outcomes or achievement of objectives. The use of simulation supports assessment or evaluation of behaviors demonstrated in the domains of learning: cognitive (knowledge), affective (attitude), and psychomotor (skills).
