Abstract

This quasiexperiment tested the effect of the use of a randomized name generator (wheel of discussion) on course performance in an introductory psychology course. In one section of the course, the instructor implemented the use of the wheel of discussion immediately, whereas, in the second section, the instructor introduced the wheel of discussion after the second exam. Although results did not reveal an overall difference in course performance between the two sections, students from the delayed introduction section showed a larger improvement in performance with the introduction of the wheel. Results suggest that the use of a randomized name generator may be one way to improve performance.
