A Cognitive Investigation of the Internal Validity of a Management Strategy Simulation Game

T. Rick Whiteley, Ray Leduc, Bill Dawson

The results indicate that game participants were unable to determine (i.e., cognitive insight) the nature of the response functions for the demand-generating variables of the game. The internal validity of such a pedagogical tool, therefore, is open to question.
