Basic Quality Management Jeopardy Game
HI All!

I am the faculty advisor for the State University of NY-Fredonia Student group. We are having activities night on Saturday via Zoom to recruit new student members. The students would like to do a simple Quality Jeopardy game. Does anyone have a template or set up we could use that is Zoom friendly? If so, would you kindly email me directly at Lisa.Walters@Fredonia.edu?

Thank you kindly!

Hi Lisa Walters‍ - how fun! I think Robert Mitchell‍ might have something, he does great things with the Phoenix section. We've had some trivia from World Quality Month...I'll check to see if I can locate that. You'll have to let us know how it goes! :)
Good luck!

Lisa,
Yes, the ASQ Phoenix Section has conducted Quality Jeopardy Team competitions during our December ("Holiday") Program meetings. These were run back before COVID, aka face-to-face. We had attendees sit at round tables of 6-8 each. Each team was supplied with a buzzer. The first team to buzz in would get to answer first. Teams would be awarded points for each question answered correctly, and lose points for wrong answers. We had a 15 minute Jeopardy session followed by a 15 minute Double Jeopardy, then a Final Jeopardy just like the TV game show. We even had "Daily Double" Jeopardy questions that would pop-up where the team could select the point value they wished to risk.

I found an Excel template on the internet whereby one can customize his/her own Jeopardy questions and answers. The Excel template would then populate Powerpoint via a Visual Basic macro. I built our questions based on CQA, CQE, and CMQ/OE exams. The only feature I could not quite get to work properly was the Final Jeopardy question. I simply resorted to a manual slide advance for that portion of the competition.

It worked well but took some practice. People were engaged and had fun.

I will send to your email address a copy of my Jeopardy files (Excel template and PowerPoint slides).

Regards,
BobM

Thank you very much! The students put several of the members' input to their Jeopardy game, and it was a big success! They are going to run it again. Thank you and all who contributed again!
