Examining the Role of Quizzing on Childrens Curiosity

Tony Brian D'souza | Harsha Manjunath


Abstract: Thriving in today's world does not come as a ready recipe, however, individuals with an inclination towards new information, discovery, and problem solving are better equipped than the rest. In other words, curiosity is key! This research paper is aimed at measuring levels of curiosity amongst children and how they may be affected by competitive quizzing. A quiz was conducted as an experiment on children and ?pre' & ?post? data was collected from the same using a standardised curiosity assessment, Children's Curiosity Scale (CCS), developed by Dr. Rajiv Kumar. The collected data was used to understand the relationship between quizzing and curiosity. Data from the standardised scale showed no significant change in children's curiosity from before and after the single quizzing intervention. However, certain mechanics used in the quiz, such as the act of asking questions and use of visual media, show potential for stimulation of curiosity as backed by Berlyne (1954, 1955) and Arnone, et al. 's (2011). The implications of this study point toward ways in which traditional educational experiences can be modified to include references to curiosity that benefit educators and learners alike.
