The purpose of this paper was to elucidate the crucial importance of using a learning theory to develop simulation as well as to assess student learning outcomes from and during simulation. The authors designed a simulation model based on language learning called SIMBaLL, SIMulation Based on Language and Learning that was evolved from Arwood’s Neurosemantic Language Learning Theory. This model provides a hierarchical framework to assess and measure conceptual learning outcomes.
