Captain Kashima et al. showed that ship handling skills significantly improve when anchoring exercises are practiced on training ships. And Kunieda et al. showed that the practicing on training ships also develops critical thinking and problem-solving skills. We created an evaluation scale for elementary ship handling skills to measure the effects of different anchoring training methods. We assessed the training methods using a rubric evaluation list containing nine evaluation items. Group work was arranged before and after the anchoring training sessions based on the results from student questionnaires and instructor evaluations. Our results reveal the most effective training model for developing ship handling skills.
