This report documents the discussions of the Hybrid Simulation Task Force meeting held March 27-28, 2014, in West Lafayette, Indiana. 

The purpose of this document is to provide a summary of the current state of assessment measures that may be implemented by users interested in evaluating the fidelity of a hybrid simulation. After reading this document, we anticipate that hybrid simulation users will have a better understanding of recent advances in hybrid simulation, consider a proposed definition of a successful hybrid simulation, and access available resources for implementation of hybrid simulation assessment measures. This document provides a summary of various current assessment measures for hybrid simulation users to evaluate their tests, and demonstrates implementation of these using results from sample data pulled from actual hybrid simulations available in the NEEShub. A suggested protocol is included for users to plan a hybrid simulation and isolate sources of uncertainty to reduce errors during testing. Interested readers are also directed to the Hybrid Simulation Primer and Dictionary (
