The growing need for Toars on bridge simulators

Simulation assessments merit a system that is comprehensive, valid and reliable to assess the necessary elements along with the critical knowledge and skills of a mariner to validate that  they can demonstrate proficiently in a realistic setting.

At Maritime Toar Assessments Inc. the assessment process in itself is important in curriculum development as well feedback & learning. Our examiners have found that these standards have been efficient in assessing professionalism, communication, procedural drills and maneuvering skills.

Ideally, simulation developers should reflect on the purpose of the exercise to determine if the focus is on teaching ,if so then the assessing should focus on performance criteria with an understanding for a skill set based on the experience of the training.
