What do Students Know? : A Comparison of Game Assessment, Cooperative Testing and Traditional Testing

Students (N=122) from introductory psychology and social psychology courses are randomly assigned to one of three conditions to assess course knowledge. In the Traditional Test condition, a normal pencil and paper test is administered. In the Game condition students are divided into small groups to participate in a quiz style game. In the Cooperative testing condition students are randomly assigned to small groups to arrive at a team answer. The results suggest that average team scores in both the Game and Cooperative Testing conditions are higher than individual mean scores in those conditions and the Traditional Testing condition. Additional findings will be presented
