Health Science Graduate students at Seton Hall University can employ different techniques when preparing for exams to improve their academic performance. They are able to utilize a variety of tools and strategies to prepare for tests that may allow them to recall and manipulate information according to the task at hand. One of these techniques includes studying using online games that are set up as quizzes in order to be constantly exposed to the information in a more entertaining fashion. Mini quiz games such as “Quizlet,” “Kahoots”, or “Quizizz” may be beneficial study methods because they provide visual and repetitive strategies that can help incorporate information into working and short term memory in order to recall the information at …show more content…
A study conducted by Baniqued and colleagues found that participants who engaged in cognitive training games had, “improvements in “lower-level” abilities of perceptual speed and attention—which may reflect more efficient processing of stimuli to support performance in more complex tasks” (Baniqued et al., 2015). In other words, participants who engaged in cognitive training games showed improved in perceptual speech and …show more content…
Health Science Graduate students have an extensive workload and are required to retain information to be able to effectively implement their knowledge onto future clients and treatments. It is necessary to find out in which ways one performs better on tests: with a mini quiz game or without one. We hypothesized that graduate students who participate in mini quiz games will have improved scores and shorter recall time on the immediate post-test. The game was designed to specifically invoke Baddeley’s working memory model as it allows for the identification of a possible connection between how the visuo-spatial sketchpad and phonological loop work together to improve the temporary storage of information (Baddeley, 2003). In this study, the following questions were addressed, “Will there be a difference in immediate post-test scores of graduate students who participated in mini quiz games when compared to those students who do not study or participate in mini quiz games?” and “Will there be differences in the amount of time taken to complete the post-test between the graduate students who participated in mini quiz games and those who did
