Pre-Assessment Results: For the pre-assessment, the students were asked to fill out a self-evaluation form rating how they thought they would do on their test before reviewing using the Jeopardy game. The students could score themselves as a 1 being “AHH!!! I’m going to bomb it,” 2 “Just ok. I don’t remember how to answer a lot of the questions,” 3 “I remember how to answer some of the questions but not all,” 4 “I’m going to do well but need to study more,” or a 5 “I know everything and will get 100%.” According to the 26 students who took the before review self-evaluation they scored themselves as follows: two 1’s, three 2’s, nine 3’s, eleven 4’s, and no 5’s. One student circled 2, 3, and 4 as their before evaluation. I learned from my pre assessment data that my students did not feel confident.
