Abstract
The goal of this project was to further our understanding of how students learn. Does reviewing for exams using certain teaching methods actually enhance students' learning of course material? Through a comparative analysis of two sections of the same class, we tested to see if using crossword puzzles as a "fun" review technique actually affects students' exam scores as evidence of successful learning.
Description
Poster with text detailing research conducted by Dr. Tricia Davis (University of Wisconsin-River Falls) and Brooke Shepherd that investigates whether or not using crossword puzzles as a review aid for exams affects students' exam scores.
