A Comparison of Eighth Grade Students' Testing Scores between the "Jeopardy" and "Seatwork" Types of Review.
Daft, Lee T.
This study focused on the review process before social studies testing. The students involved in the study were 71 13 and 14-year olds and came from predominantly middle to upper class social status in a Knoxville, Tennessee suburb. The influence of an interactive review based on the quiz show "Jeopardy" was compared with that of a "seatwork" review. In the "Jeopardy" review, three teams competed to answer questions correctly, and in the seatwork review, students completed a review sheet. The study was repeated, switching seatwork and "Jeopardy" groups, so that data were available for 142 students. Results show no significant difference in test scores between students receiving the "Jeopardy" review and those receiving the seatwork review. Appendixes contain a letter of approval from the school system and sample parent approval forms for the study. (Contains 31 references.) (SLD)
