I Wish I Had This Type of Exam!!!

Postby KPucks » Wed Mar 03, 2004 10:06 pm

Holy crap! Look at this test that Jim Harrick Jr., the former assistant at Georgia, gave to his students that happened to also play on the basketball team.

How many points is a 3-pointer worth? How many halves are there in a college b-ball game?

I never got these kind of exams!

One of my teachers would give exams every Friday. On the Wednesday before the test, he gave a "study guide". Here's an example:

#1--The MLB home run record is 73.

#2--The AL MVP last year was Alex Rodriguez.

#3--The World Series Champions last year were The Florida Marlins.

Etc., etc., etc.

When the test came out, it looked like this:

#1--The MLB home run record is __________.

#2--The AL MVP last year was ____________.

#3--The World Series Champions last year were ___________.

The review and the test were exactly the same. Same questions, same order. Just memorize what's underlined for a perfect score. Each test was only 10 questions, which made it pretty easy. Not exactly the best teaching, but all the students were happy about it.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I had a Sociology professor do that in College. She would hold the test up the class before the exam and read us the questions. :-D

This chick that I was dating at the time struggled to get a C in the class. :-D 8-o :-°
