Abstract: This paper describes the initial findings of a systematic meta-analysis of the literature of computer simulations related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning. Features of the simulations, quality of the research design, and the assessments/instruments used to measure learning are the primary moderating variables of interest. A meta-analysis of 55 research studies of K-12 science education, published between 1991 and 2012, found that on average simulations had a positive effect on science achievement.
