This site is part of Wadsworth/Thompson online resources.  It is an interactive learning game similar to Jeopardy using sociological categories.  Students can test their knowledge in a variety of topical areas found in an introductory text.

The material on this site is extremely easy to use.  The content is more directed at memorization of key sociologists, theories and perspectives, and concepts.  It does not enhance critical thinking skills of students.  The material is effective in helping students assess their knowledge and it is interactive.  Students not using a Thompson/Wadsworth text may not score highly because of the variations in coverage in introductory texts.  Additionally, students self-score and therefore scores should not be used as an indication of student knowledge!  This is best used as a resource for students prior to taking an examination.

 

Technical Remarks:

I would like to see the site develop an automated scoring system.  This would include a more indepth explanation of a theorist/concept/theory if the student is not correct.

Time spent reviewing site: 30 minutes
