SimsUshare Evaluation Sheets
SimsUshare CTC is great for training your students using localized incident simulations based on your first-due photos, or other sims you may have imported from our Mutual Aid customer sim database. Up until this point, SimsUshare was aimed at essentially displaying and coordinating the simulations, apart from the task of evaluating participants. However, to help with evaluations we took a small step to assist with recordkeeping during exercises by including a timestamped transcript of all actions taken by participants. The transcript can be used for comparing assignments and events in post-exercise reviews, and, most importantly, serving as a ‘written’ record of participant movement during promotional exams for placement in a candidate’s file.
We are now taking a bigger step with the introduction of SimsUshare Evaluations. Evaluations are simple tactical evaluation sheets that you create in the Exercises tab of the CTC, or import and adapt from community evaluation sheets (available in the Mutual Aid section of the CTC).
When you join an exercise as an instructor, you choose which evaluation sheets you want to display during the exercise. Once in the exercise, you call up the sheets and simply click on any of the answers. As the screenshot on the right illustrates, you also have a handy text box next to each question in which you can add specific comments. When you click on an answer, or press <Enter> in one of the text boxes, SimsUshare adds the answer to your transcript, with a timestamp, as well as highlighting your answer. This makes it super convenient to record your observations and evaluations while the exercise is in progress. When you have finished, you can print the sheets or simply copy the contents of the transcript to add to your candidate’s evaluation.
