  1. Results are described by means ± SD and compared using ANOVA (followed by post hoc comparison when significant). The participant’s actions were assigned neutral, negative or positive points, as defined by the pedagogical team. The score and playing time were generated automatically by the serious game software
  2. *p value < 0.05 was considered significant between groups S, R, and E
  3. £n = 24 because one student experienced a technical problem with data recording in case 1 which could not be stored for analysis
