Playing Jeopardy in the Classroom: An Empirical Study

Journal of Information Systems Education Volume 24, Number 3, ISSN 1055-3096


Playing TV game shows such as "Jeopardy" or "Survivor" in the classroom can be fun. But does it improve student understanding of course concepts? To find out, the author conducted eight experimental trials in five separate undergraduate information systems classes. Although he found limited improvement in student learning, the author's experiences with the game and the results of a student survey were positive.
