Description of Pedagogical Tool:

The ‘Elements of Design Review’ Jeopardy Game is an interactive pedagogical tool that is designed to be an entertaining and engaging diagnostic assessment device of the coverage of the previous year’s material. The game allows for insight into students’ current level of understanding while preparing them to use these concepts in their Grade 10 – Design unit. The game is played in similar fashion to the real Jeopardy game show except students are grouped into teams. Each of the seven categories are designated to one of the seven elements of design, and some questions include visual elements that allow students to understand the question in “visual” terms. Using Bloom’s taxonomy, the questions are divided by points into simple lower order questions focusing primarily on knowledge and comprehension of terminology (10-20 points), to high order questions, encouraging students to identify and critically think about the elements of design and concepts developed over last year’s course (30-40 points).
