Aspy Palia


Based on learning and engagement theory, this paper provides evidence of sustained (a) observed in-class participation / interaction skills (cognitive), emotional (affective), and performance physical (behavioral) engagement among competing simulation team members. In-class engagement measures monitored include observed levels of increased attendance, in-class focus and energy, relevant questions raised, discussion quality, decision support package usage, end-of-period scaffolding, initial, intermediate, and final debriefing.  Out-of-class engagement measures include two-way communication, bi-weekly online decision entry, results retrieval, and graphics package usage, weekly writing assignments, individual report, team presentation, server log statistics of daily, weekly, and semester team activity, website tracking, and online survey responses.
