Do you remember the feeling that used to come over you when your teacher would announce a “pop quiz”? Beads of sweat would come pouring down your face as the papers were handed out, and your hands would shake so much you could hardly hold the pencil straight.A quiz was something to be dreaded, endured, and gotten over with as quickly as possible.
So what is it about the computer that makes a quiz so much more bearable? In the internet age, we actually take quizzes just for fun!What is your brain age? What kind of romantic are you? How much trivia do you know from your favorite TV show? There is something about simply pointing and clicking that makes an online quiz seem more like play than effort. And when you get the final results from your responses, it doesn’t seem to matter whether you did well or not, because it wasn’t some overbearing teacher grading you. No, it was your non-judgmental computer!
Teachers have known about this computer-bias for quiz taking for some time, and they have used it to their advantage. Many teachers upload all of their class quizzes and tests to the net, so that students can feel more relaxed and engaged as they attempt to show what they know. And it works!
