The readouts from the "Infant Simiulators"
How did 10 teenagers do with the infant simulators based upon the computer report? Each simulator captures data on how well the students dispensed Proper Care (rocking, diapering, buring, and feeding) and logs incidents of Mishandling (shaken baby, head support, wrong position, rough handling). Only 1 out of 10 students received a passing score. The highest performance overview was 77% with 30 minutes of crying and the lowest was 0% with 74 minutes of crying. The ongoing debriefing sessions have proven to be enlightening for students, teachers, and the SAPIS workers.
