Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. On the Spot is a series tapping knowledge across a series of subject areas: geography, art, technology, science, math, history, language, music and sports. It also addresses general cultural knowledge. The format is a series of seemingly random questions to individuals who are either of school age or adults past the age of high school graduation. There are three fundamental educational benefits to this format. First, it taps into fact retrieval in the curriculum. Second, and more important, it expands the information beyond fact retrieval. Third, and most important, it addresses what educators call non-cognitive factors for student success. These are factors that can measurably improve student achievement without specifically involving material to be tested. The fact that young people will see this on television in a non-academic setting is also very important. Whatever the curriculum or information, knowledge becomes the star - and is demonstrated by every type of person.
