Not all of the games produced through the serious games initiative meet the adaptive assessment demands of simulation-based training. Simulation-based training aims to provide students with real-world capabilities acquired and practiced in a simulated environment. However, real-world working conditions may be ill-structured and unpredictable; students must be prepared to adapt their skills to a changing environment, and a training environment must be able to employ adaptive performance metrics. One approach to developing this adaptive capability in students is to situate them into multiple simulated contexts, with different tasks to perform under various conditions to specified standards, and with the aggregate of training situations adequately covering the space of real-world situations. This presentation will describe game design templating for developing sufficiently varying simulated tasks to ensure that the simulated training environment meets real-world adaptive needs.
