A family budget simulation was designed and field-tested using pretest and posttest comparisons of fifty-six students and posttest only comparisons of one hundred sixty-three students to measure student achievement. The results showed substantial pretest to posttest gains but no significant differences in posttest only averages between students using the simulation and those not using the simulation. Recommendations for improving the design and application of the simulation are discussed.
