ABSTRACT
Training effectiveness evaluation research is not keeping up with the rapid pace of medical simulation technology development and acquisition. Currently the military acquisition community is calling for empirical demonstration that simulators provide an effective means for training medical personnel. Military and civilian organizations are charged with evaluating simulation based training, frequently without access to trained evaluation researchers or easy to use guidance for selecting among the myriad approaches to training effectiveness evaluation. The goal of this paper is to illustrate challenges to training evaluation in the military and present an overview of a training evaluation research guidance tool, the Medical Simulation TRaining REseArch DesIgner (MST-READI), to aid researchers in developing a research protocol, or evaluation plan, for assessing the 'READI'-ness of the training system to support effective training, taking into account relevant aspects of the evaluation environment, training system characteristics, and evaluation science.
