Do you play games of jeopardy? Everyone loves Jeopardy. But then, it’s not really a game of high stakes. It’s trivial.

Reeves (2011) states that any form of classroom visit that could jeopardize a teacher’s job security will not be enthusiastically accepted. However, sometimes there are games of jeopardy in which the stakes are high, and as a result, performance suffers.

High stakes create undue anxiety, have negative effects on self-efficacy, and produce toxicity in the culture.
