This is great to be used as a first day activity to see what students already know about the content in a Psychology course. Students are asked questions such as "What is the average IQ score?" and "Can you name all of the lobes of the brain?". The slides that follow provide the answers for each of the questions. It's informal in the sense that students do not actually receive a grade, it's a self-evaluation of what they already know about the course content. Of course, it can be graded if the teacher so chooses!
This is a great first week activity to get to know the knowledge level of each of your students and also provide your class with a preview of what the course is all about!
