Clinical simulations provide a safe, controlled learning environment that can mirror a range of real life patient simulations. The closer these simulated experiences come to mimicking the complexities of actual patient care, the more difficult it becomes for evaluators to rate student performance objectively. Each participant group's interpretation of these situations results in a unique product. A possible solution to the evaluation dilemma could be the use of an instrument that reduces these combinations of outcomes into manageable units. The challenge lies in the difficulty of eliminating subjective decisions made by evaluators based on observations. To achieve this, an instrument should identify those tasks and critical thinking skills that are important. The instrument used to assess these skills should be sufficiently structured for evaluators to consistently evaluate students and achieve a balance of minimal subjectivity and maximum objectivity. The Clinical Simulation Grading Rubric was intended to be an instrument that could capture this subjective interpretation of care in an objective manner. In its current form the rubric has demonstrated solid construction in testing of levels of nursing performance, but needs improvement to achieve internal consistency.

This companion manual is designed for school leaders participating in clinical simulations. While it provides all necessary information to situate leaders in a simulated environment, it does not provide the additional materials necessary to successfully train standardized individuals, nor does it outline the broader logistical steps for implementing clinical simulations. School leader educators or representatives from school districts seeking to facilitate clinical simulations should consult the broader primary text: Beyond Tears, Tirades, and Tantrums: Clinical Simulations for School Leader Development.

Clinical simulations provide school leaders with opportunities to enact and examine their leadership approaches, decisions, and policies, without consequence. Building on medical education’s use of standardized patients, this book introduces standardized individuals and clinical simulations into the field of school leader preparation. In live, onetoone interactions, school leaders engage in variety of professional situations with standardized students, parents, teachers, and community members. Each carefully scripted standardized individual presents a problem of practice, while unscripted school leader participants are free to enact their own professional knowledge, dispositions, and decisionmaking approaches as they engage within a simulation. When confronted by an angry father (in simulation), leaders practice their explanations and policies surrounding challenged curriculum. When presented with an inebriated student (in simulation), leaders enact decisionsteps associated with student discipline and communicating with health and law enforcement officials. When students and parents express concerns about classroom instruction, leaders engage with standardized teachers (in simulation) to focus on instructional quality. The thirteen simulations in this book address a broad range of complex, but common issues that school leaders encounter through daily service in K12 schools. This book provides school leader educators and professional development facilitators with all the information necessary to fully implement clinical simulations for school leader development. Included are chapters on the concept of clinical simulations, training procedures for standardized individuals, logistical steps toward implementation, and the documents necessary to successfully facilitate thirteen different clinical simulations. NOTE: This book is designed for school leader educators and school district professional development personnel who intend to facilitate clinical simulations with cohorts of school leaders. School leaders who intend to participate in the actual simulations should consult the separate text: Clinical Simulations for School Leader Development: A Companion Manual for School Leaders.

"This book could easily become the "go to" text for standardized patient utilization and the backbone for implementation strategies in learning programs...It is a must-have for all disciplines interested in adding the human simulation experience to their programs."--Nursing Education Perspectives "Today there is an explosion in the use of simulation in nursing and health professions education. The contributors to this text are experts in this format of teaching. They are the designers of the learning spaces, the authors of simulation cases and evaluation methods, the experts who program the human patient simulators and who teach the patient actors to enact the clinical scenariosÖI consider this a "handbook" on the design, evaluation and practice of simulation for clinical education. If you are a faculty member with concerns about how your students will make the transition from student to professional, use simulation in your curriculum and learn for yourself that pretending is simulation for life but simulation is pretending for the delivery of exquisite clinical care."
