Microbial Jeopardy!™ Review and Assessment
Students work individually and collaboratively in teams during a Jeopardy!™-style activity. Questions based upon previous class material are posed to students to assess their learning. Teams are encouraged to help their members answer questions completely and are rewarded when all members have participated. This daily assessment activity emphasizes the key concepts and expectations of the course for students and fosters active group learning. Students also get practice in communicating scientific concepts. The professor can use this assessment of student understanding to modify the focus, pace, and presentation of the current day's material.
