No. SimCEO’s flexibility allows for easy connections to English, geography, politics, science, math, and many other subjects. Teachers use their teaching skills to focus student energies on meeting appropri-ate educational objectives. How does a student win the simulation? Students may measure their success by: ã Creating a company that ends with the highest share price, or ã Ending with the greatest portfolio value. However, the true measure of success comes from the skills they will learn along the way. Why is simCEO such a useful learning tool? SimCEO puts students in a situa-tion where they have to create,  write and reason for an authentic purpose – to demonstrate quality to others and not just be graded  by the instructor. Why is the quality of student work better?  When students strive to research and write profes-sional answers intended to persuade others that their business will be successful, the quality of work increases. Students understand their responses are not simply graded, but reviewed by their peers and the public. Integrate the NCEE Standards Specific NCEE standards are applied through lesson plans, student worksheets, and teaching sugges-tions.
