Blink by Malcolm Gladwell
Good book with some interesting potential applications for testing.
I was thinking of applying this to what we do immediately before we give a test.
How does that "set up" (if we do any)- impact our students to do their best.
BLINK is a fast read. It gives the science behind why Gibb's gut works on NCIS.
Does anyone have a ritual to get their students in a good frame of mind to test well.
For a while I was handing out peppermint / or / cinnamin gum with their unit tests.
I have to admit it did not seem to help.
