The Effects of Teams-Games-Tournament and Two Instructional Variations on Classroom Process, Student Attitudes, and Student Achievement. Report Number 172.
Edwards, Keith J.; DeVries, David L.
This study assessed the effects of Teams-Games-Tournament (TGT) and two variations on student attitudes, achievement, and classroom processes in mathematics and social studies classes. The two variations involved weighted scoring in the game component and the deletion of tem competition. The experiment involved 128 seventh-grade students for a 12-week period. Neither TGT nor its variants had any significant impact on the social studies classes when compared to a traditionally structured control class. TGT and its variants had significant impact on the mathematics classes affecting a variety of dependent variables. (A 25-item bibliography and 8 tables are included.) (Author)
