EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION – The instructor can allow the winning team to pick an exercise for the losing team to do. This can motivate the students to win so they can choose an exercise for their friends to do.
WORKING MEMORY – The student must listen for the basic that the instructor calls out, and remember that combination as they run down to hit the buzzer. This works on their ability to hold onto information while performing a task.
