In recent years, organisational software process education has seen a considerable uptick in interest in adopting business simulation games (BSGs) as a novel learning resource. However, the lack of reliable and valid instruments to evaluate simulation learning outcomes inhibits the adoption and progress of simulation in Information System education. To fill this need, we performed a systematic review of 33 empirical studies using the PRISMA declaration approach to identify the different evaluation methods used to analyse BSG learning outcomes. We created a concept matrix using a didactic framework that categorised these assessment methodologies into three game stages (pre-game, in-game and post-game). We established a comprehensive evaluation strategy using this concept matrix, which teachers and researchers may use to choose the best appropriate evaluation method to analyse a wide range of learning outcomes of business simulation games.
