Assessment of student’s knowledge of any given subject matter is important at the course, program and institutional–level. There are many ways to assess student knowledge including term projects, paper-and-pencil tests, and games. One method of assessment that students find enjoyable and that may be as effective as the traditional paper-and-pencil measurements is the use of a Jeopardy–style game. No research, however, has been conducted to examine whether number of members on a jeopardy team (e.g., 1 or 3) influences performance. In this study, participants will be randomly assigned to one of three conditions. In the two experimental conditions, Jeopardy-style teams containing one member or three members will be present. A control group in which a paper-and-pencil test is administered will also be implemented. The number of questions participants in each condition correctly answer will be compared between the three conditions. In this presentation, I will describe this research project and present the findings.
