Abstract: This mixed-methods study investigates the use and impact of simSchool as a field experience component of a required mathematics class taken by preservice teacher candidates. Participants in the study were trained to use simSchool, completed numerous simulations, and answered questions on those simulations. Relationships between personality traits and learning styles were studied along with changes to self-efficacy in preservice teachers after engaging in simSchool simulations. Topics addressed include preservice teacher self-efficacy, personality traits, and learning styles of preservice teachers.
