Abstract

Researchers are aware of the importance of debriefing in gaming. However, there has been little progress in establishing a methodology for evaluating player behavior. Therefore, we propose a framework to support the evaluation of player behavior in business games using computers. Specifically, we introduce a simulation analysis methodology that involves the following steps: (1) constructing an agent-based model based on the subject of the business game and categorizing simulation-logs; and (2) mapping logs of player behavior onto typed results. In this way, the positioning of the player in the overall simulation scenario is visualized, and a range of possible results is presented. Both players and facilitators receive information that is useful for debriefing.
