"Development and Psychometric Analysis of the ACTS Tool; A Measure of Confederates’ Performance in Simulation Encounters”, Jill Sanko-Steiner, PhD, PI

The primary aim of this study was to develop and test a tool to measure the performance of confederates in simulation encounters.

Findings and use of this novel tool to objectively assess confederates contribution to simulation encounters provide evidence to support its use. A Cronbach's Alpha of .89 with good internal consistency (all total item correlations were above .41) was found.
