My discussion here is why I criticize my 17 year old self for not being more confident about my self-assessment. I don’t criticize my 13 year self who pretty much understood the same thing. It is reasonable to the 13 year old to treat the assessment as a hypothesis to be tested. The various tests attempted were all appropriate, if not not sufficient.
The key question is how can we recover the valuable experiential learning approach. The online approach has merit and the current time welcomes so-called disruptive technologies. The online approach involves a simulation of a task. The problem with simulations is that it there is no way to eliminate the understanding that it is a simulation. No matter how realistic, a simulation will never have an outcome that has real world business-relevant outcomes.
