In any case, check this out: Students Blame Innovative Incentive Program for Tricking Them into Learning
Psychology professor Edgar Stevens is a popular topic of conversation at Farmington College today as he has become the center of an unusual campus debate. Stevens, a recent recipient of the Farmington Innovative Teaching Citation, inspired heated conversation at the recent Student Government Association (SGA) meeting as a result of an assignment in his second-tier psychology course.
Stevens assigned an online exam last week with the intent, as he told his students, to give them another major exam that counted for double the points in response to what he told them were dismal scores on the first two exams.
Weeks of preparation allowed students to prepare, and when the big exam day came the stress was palpable. Awash with fear of the difficult exam, students visited the link for the test and they instead found a link to a Rick Astley video of the song "Never Gonna Give You Up" and an explanation that they had just been "Rick Rolled."
