Assessment and Assurance of Learning Comp-XM, The Competency Exam, is an assessment tool to determine and demonstrate what participants have learned though the Capsim business simulation experience. Comp-XM provides Assurance of Learning to support a wide range of stated learning goals.
The unique two-part Comp-XM examination process uses a business simulation similar in appearance and structure to Foundation and Capstone, followed by a series of board query questions that are specific to the results of the answers provided in the prior simulation rounds. View sample exam questions.
Comp-XM can be used at the end of a course for assurance of learning purposes, or earlier, to measure content retention.
Comp-XM is distinct among exams for three important reasons:
- Comp-XM tests an individual student’s ability to not only answer questions about managing a business, but also tests the student’s ability to manage the business. Most exams test only the ability to answer questions.
- Comp-XM continues the learning process for students because they continue to see results from their efforts during the exam activities.
- Comp-XM addresses assurance of learning goals. View a complete analysis of how the Capsim business simulation experience integrates with Assurance of Learning Goals.
