Abstract

Assessment of learning within a simulated teaching environment is addressed within the context of a federally funded project to improve the maturity and retention of preservice teachers. Analysis of matched treatment and comparison data from two classes of teacher preparation candidates indicates that technology skills are not strongly impacted by the simulated environment but some types of pedagogical skills are affected. These findings provide credible evidence that we can measure learning that takes place in a simulated teaching environment. The technological, pedagogical, content knowledge framework would indicate that two of the three important areas are currently being considered. Current research is needed to fully integrate the simulation of content scenarios within the teaching and learning paradigm.
