Murdoch University requires all Initial Teacher Education (ITE) candidates to respond to a 5-minute SimLab interaction with the aim of teaching a topic of choice, learning something about each avatar and concluding, by asking questions to confirm understanding of the information discussed. A rubric, addressing 4-criteria, is used to evaluate student success. A demonstration of SimLab and preliminary research data that explores the effectiveness and predictive validity of simulation as an on-entry performance assessment are the foci of this work.
