A Test of the relative effectiveness of using systems simulations to increase student understanding of environmental issues

Document Type

Conference Proceeding


This paper reports on an experimental study testing the relative effect of using simulation models on systems thinking in a college-level Introduction to Environmental Science class. The preliminary findings show mixed results. It is unclear whether this is a result on the systems simulations used in the interventions or the assessment techniques employed to study their effectiveness.
