Student Success Measures Added as Alternate Scoring Method

Capsim defines its success by the success of its users. Professors have been asking for alternative types of scoring – including more customized grading.  

We're excited to announce Success Measures is now available as an alternate scoring method across our suite of business simulations including: 

  • CapsimCore
  • CapsimOps
  • CapsimGlobal
  • Capstone 2.0 

Users will now have an option in their course settings that allows them to select their primary scoring method. This decision will reflect the scoring being displayed on the student dashboard and gradebook. 

Success Measures provides instructors with a flexible and comprehensive way to score student performance using up to eight key business metrics:

  • Profit
  • ROS
  • ROE
  • ROA
  • Market Share
  • Stock Price
  • Asset Turnover
  • Market Capitalization

With this new enhancement, users will be able to: 

  • Select the specific scoring metrics that best fit their course 
  • Individually weight metrics for their entire industry or per team 
  • Calculate metrics as a cumulative, average, or ending score 
  • Allow participants to select their own weights

To learn more about this new grading method, please check out this brief walkthrough that highlights some of its capabilities – video here. 



We hope you enjoy this update and look forward to evolving our products from your feedback!
