dc.description.abstractThe use of simulation technology, in conjunction with instructor led rules of the road (RoR) lectures, is in the infancy stages of curriculum development in maritime institutions. As a result, there are few studies that analyze whether using simulators will increase a students ability to apply maritime rules that prevent collisions at sea in a simulation based scenario. This study hypothesized that students who used a Full Mission Bridge simulator and received lectures would achieve higher scores on a RoR test than those who did not receive simulator training but did receive lectures. Utilizing 27 active duty participants that used a simulator and 341 examinees who did not use a simulator at Surface Warfare Officer School Newport, our results showed statistically significant data that students who used the simulator performed better on a RoR test than those who did not. This study recommends that incorporating simulation technology into curricula that have traditionally been only instructed in a classroom environment is beneficial, especially in learning RoR. Based on the results of this study, there is a need for incorporating simulation technology in traditionally instructed courses, where applicable, and future studies using simulation technology should be extended to the fleet.en_US
