Review of an Academic Paper Titled “Educational Validity of Business Gaming Simulation: A Research Methodology Framework” Written by Andrew J Stainton, Johnnie E Johnson and Edward P Borodzicz The article entitled, “Educational Validity of Business Gaming Simulation: A Research Methodology Framework,” coauthored by Andrew J Stainton, Johnnie E Johnson and Edward P Borodzicz, appears in the journal Simulation & Gaming, Issue 41, Volume 5, published by Sage Publications.
Abstract: The purpose of an abstract is to provide the audience with a clear idea of the contents of the paper, where the authors describe the purpose of the paper, the research methodology used and a brief discussion of the findings, discussions and recommendations, if any. In this context, the article under review clearly brings out the fact that many previous studies on educational validity of gaming simulations “have been inconclusive” (Stainton et al, 2010, p.705). Thus, the authors inform the audience that their study has considered this aspect and it will “provide a foundation for future educational validity studies” (p.705). The abstract in this case, therefore, serves its intended purpose as per academic conventions. Introduction: Though the authors do not segregate and assign a separate section for introduction, they introduce the topic in the beginning stating that the study “proposes a methodology framework for assessing the educational validity of business gaming solution” (p.705). The authors further identify “total enterprise simulation” (TES) as a “credible learning tool” that can justify the time and cost invested by the students (p.705-706). ...
