Document type


Industrial operator assessment is a very controversial subject in the scientific community, as determining the most suitable, objective and effective means of giving feedback on an operator’s performance is a great challenge. This paper presents a proposal on assessment methods for simulation training. The development is based on the results from simulator training courses held at Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences (HiOA) from 2010 to 2014. The results and course evaluation were analyzed to identify where new methods could be applied that would lead to improvement. The method proposed consists of an automatic assessment procedure, which will give feedback to the simulator course participants during the simulator session and help the students to achieve the learning outcomes. The proposed method will be tested in the simulator training courses at HiOA in spring 2017 and the results will be presented in a later paper.
