IDEA#40 Trivia
 Overview Pages:142-144
"The Trivia technique is a game that increases the students’ ability to recall course content. Most frequently, this activity is designed for testing specific course ideas, concepts, and facts. The technique is easy to use and requires little setup or design. Many versions of Trivia exist, and the game can be made more elaborate through the use of teams, points, and timers.Similar to the game show Jeopardy or the board game Trivial Pursuit, Trivia asks students a short question that they answer individually or in teams. This activity works particularly well in reviewing recent lessons or in preparing for exams. The game provides students an opportunity to recall course ideas along with the provision of immediate feedback of whether an answer is right or wrong." — Teaching for Learning, Major CH, Harris MS, Zakrajsek T, 2016
