Psychometric properties of the simulation thinking rubric to measure higher order thinking in undergraduate nursing students

Document Type



There is progress in the development of simulation-based instruments that measure the effectiveness of high-fidelity simulation (HFS) as an educational strategy. However, there are few psychometrically sound instruments that can quantify learning in HFS. This study sought to test the psychometric properties of the Simulation Thinking Rubric (STR). The purpose of the STR was to assess higher order thinking during HFS in undergraduate (bachelor of science in nursing [BSN]) nursing students.
