This workshop for faculty who use simulation for teaching. The goal is learning to design an assessment with validity evidence.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Create and appraise a "construct" for an assessment in a simulation
  • Define and give an example of an interpretation-use argument (IUA), as outlined in Kane’s validity framework.
  • Develop their own IUA relevant to their own assessment practices.
