Psychology Feud: When the Correct Answer Isn't the Most Valued
Wozniak, William; Mandernach, B. Jean; Wadkins, Theresa A.
Journal of Instructional Research, v1 p16-22 2012
Psychology Feud, a classroom-based adaptation of the popular American television game show, provides an innovative, engaging opportunity for students to examine popular beliefs and misconceptions concerning general psychological information in a nonthreatening atmosphere. The game can be integrated into introductory psychology courses to (a) identify and discuss common misconceptions about psychology, (b) provide a review of learned information, and (c) measure learning over the course of the semester. The game could also be used to create an opportunity for informal faculty-student interaction.
