Simulations offer the following modes:
Explore mode provides helpful feedback about the choices you make during the course of the simulation. Choice feedback appears when you roll your mouse on one of the available answer choices. You can also navigate back to previously viewed pages and select alternate choices to experience a variety of different outcomes. You will not receive any assessment scores for simulations taken in explore mode.
Score mode allows you to test your skills within the simulation. Unlike Explore mode, you will not receive any Choice Feedback about the choices you make until you complete a scene within the simulation. You are also restricted from returning to previously viewed pages. Your performance will be assessed against the simulations objectives, which are introduced in the simulation's summary page. After you complete the simulation, your score is recorded in the learner management system (LMS) database. Choices in the simulation are rated "Appropriate," "Fair," or "Inappropriate." The Simulation Player uses these ratings to determine your score.
Users have access to support materials during the simulation in Score Mode.
Test mode is similar to Score mode except that you will not have access to support material. You are also restricted from returning to previously viewed pages. Your performance will be assessed against the simulation's objectives which are introduced in the simulation's summary page.
