MarketSim - Simultaneous Play Version
To participate in the simulations you must use Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher on a computer running the Microsoft Windows operating system. Before using the program, you should review the QuickStart Manual . If you would like additional information, you can read the Instructor's Manual and the Student Manual.
In the Simultaneous Play Version all the participants must be ready to start the simulation at the same time and they must stayed logged into the simulation while a game is running (they cannot exit and reenter a game). While there is no upper limit on the number of participants, at least two people must participate in a Jeremy's Market simulation so that offers can be posted and accepted. For an Adam's Market simulation the minimum is four people. One person (typically the instructor) will be the administrator.
The administrator accepts people into the game, starts the game, and ends time periods. The administrator can also generate scores for participants in the game by clicking on the "Administrative Functions" link, and then clicking on "Assign Points."
Note that the administrator and each participant must use a different computer while participating in a game.
