Summary of "The effects of computer-based simulations on speech-language pathology student performance."

The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of a computer-based simulated learning environment on student learning in speech-language pathology. Despite a growing trend in the implementation of computer-based simulated learning environments, no research yet supports its efficacy. In addition, although over half of the United States' speech-language pathologists work in school systems, no studies have investigated simulated learning environments that focus on pediatric developmental language disorders as the disorder to be exemplified by the simulations.
