DIGITALLY TRANSPORT YOUR CLASS TO THE HALLS OF POWER
When students launch the U.S. Government Simulation for the first time they’ll take an aptitude test that evaluates defining personality characteristics, such as extroversion and conscientiousness. They’ll be assigned to a compatible position that matches their core strengths and contribution potential. Your class will represent the whole U.S. political system embodying key influencer roles such as:
Students have goals that correspond to their position and they accumulate points through accomplishing these goals every week. Some goals are competitive and others are collaborative. This dynamic requires students to work strategically with their classmates while maintaining and lobbying their personal agenda; because that’s how real life works! Regardless of their role or title every student has the potential to dramatically affect the outcome of the game through their strategic moves.

Leverage innovative technology to teach course concepts
Students are digital natives who love games!
We hear stories of student Simulation fanatics from many customers; this teaching tool is fun for both students and professors. Students are immediately hooked by the game-like play and then they are challenged by a sophisticated program that teaches not only course concepts but also real-life applicable skills such as leadership, strategy and critical thinking.
Engage students for successful, effective classes
Using a digital Simulation allows you to demonstrate course concepts in an active learning environment. Students experience U.S. Politics on a personal level so they understand and absorb your course material much better.
True teaching & learning opportunities
Often students start with great strategic plans but lack the diplomacy to implement them. They may have errors like bad planning, not thinking through the reactions of others or poor communication. These failures are the true teaching and learning opportunities; as humans we often absorb lessons best when we get something wrong and experience the pain of failure. Fortunately, students can still succeed in the class even if they don’t “win” in the simulation.
Lessons are applicable to real life situations
Students have more than enough resources and opportunities during the game play to make mistakes, learn from them and ultimately succeed in the simulation and class. That gives them a chance to learn important life lessons in a low-stakes environment and later apply their experience to truly important situations like the workplace.

Know student work is authentic; Statecraft Simulations promote academic honesty
The unique nature of Statecraft Simulations means every class is one-of-a-kind and that makes assignments plagiarism-resistant. It’s practically impossible to outsource an assignment that requires students to reference their personal experience, unique class situation and the simulation innerworkings; that’s knowledge only they have!
In the recent 2019 scholarly article The Statecraft Effect: Assessment, Attitudes, and Academic Honesty, through multimethod research design John Linantud & Joanna Kaftan concluded that Statecraft produced positive results on academic honesty. They also noticed that students are so engaged and interested in the simulations that they actually want to share their personal experiences in assignments. Students even feel increased confidence in their ability to complete assignments and to succeed in the class.
