‘Research Says’ Fruit Machine: A staff-room game.

Here is a game to help develop your colleagues’ research literacy.

Can you spot the bogus study?

Can you generate a plausible cause-effect rationale?

Ask someone to give you three numbers between 1 and 15.  Using the handy table, you then construct the sentence beginning with ‘Apparently, research says that’

For example: You get 2, 6, 11.

This generates:  Apparently, research says that boys get better GCSES by reciting ‘If’ every week during registration.

10, 4, 5 generates: Apparently, research says that Headteachers become more intolerant by attending catch-up intervention clinics 8 times a week.

Their challenge is then to devise a plausible cause-effect rationale.   Try it. Make up  your own.  Dazzle your friends.
