      Don't count such answers as correct, just skip them.

        At the beginning of the school year, I have my students write their names on colored popsicle sticks. I use these to randomly draw students' names when having discussions, grading in-class work, etc. When they know I am drawing names, they keep their answers to themselves until I say a name aloud. At other times when I'm not using the sticks, if I have a student who seems to always know and say answers, I just tell the class that "Patrick has met his quota for answering questions today" and that's a cue to him to let other students have a chance.
