Efficacy studies

In the interest of determining the efficacy of CaveSim artificial caves as educational tools, we periodically conduct surveys.  Specifically, we distribute to students pre- and post-experience knowledge assessments and look for changes in understanding and attitudes about caves and bats.  Below is a presentation outlining results from some of our studies.  Our studies are not as scientifically rigorous as we would like, and we will continue to improve our study methods as we go forward.
