Abstract

Background: Ensuring rigorous simulation-based learning experiences (SLEs) is an essential step before substituting two or more clinical hours with one hour of simulation. Methods: SLE evaluation rubric was developed based on international standards to evaluate SLE quality and to promote standardization for 2:1 substitution. Eight SLEs across courses were evaluated using the rubric in blinded peer review. Results: Reliability between reviewers reached 100% agreement before approving for 2:1 substitution. (Cohen's k = 1.0) Conclusions: The rubric is an effective way to standardize plans for high quality SLE. Further studies of validity and reliability need to be conducted.
