Stage and Task templates speed the creation of scenarios by offering a large number of presets. It is possible to bulk add empty stages and create the scenarios from scratch, but by doing so you will need to ensure that you enable/disable decisions or outputs for each stage, set minimum and maximum numbers, and so on.
It is also not a requirement to use stages/tasks at all in a scenario. For simple diagnostic or process-based scenarios, it is not necessary to use stages or tasks at all.
We currently have 7 different stage types available:
Apart from the Antibody Panel, all of these templates work using the standard Resimion interface and you can change settings as you need (should you wish to change the defaults).
If you choose to bulk add stages/tasks, they will currently be added as ‘Empty’ stages/tasks.
The defaults are set as follows, but all can be changed:
|Empty||Yes: Min: 0, Max: 10||Yes: Min 0, Max: 1||Any use where basic scenarios without stages/tasks needs more complexity|
|Antibody Panel||Yes – special||Yes – special||Transfusion using special antibody panel/screens|
|FOA Interview||Yes: Min 1, Max: 10||No||First Officer Arriving interviers|
|Single answer/choice||Yes: Min 1, Max 1||No||MCQ’s, basic questions|
|Multi-answer/choice||Yes: Min 1, Max 10||MCQ’s, risk assessments, Search-and-find, basic observations, quiz|
|Output/Outcome||No||Yes: Min: 1, Max: 10||Images, Scene Reports, Risk Report, Video Responses|
|Process/Procedure||Yes: Min 1, Max 10||Yes: Min 1, Max 10||Select and package evidence, diagnostic tests, lab processes, preparing evidence|
Adding a Stage/Task
To add a stage or task, under Step 4 in the setup wizard, click ‘Task Setup’:
Then proceed to click the Add button, selecting the stage/task type you would like.
Note: you should select an initial stage by clicking on the circle to indicate which stage Resimion will begin the scenario on. For each task you can click the pencil icon and edit it to add details:
At a minimum you should:
- Provide a task name, and task description explaining to the learner what is expected
- Add at least one activator if you are using manual progression so learners can move from stage to stage
