The Lighter Side of Assessment


OK…I was struggling to write my blog this month, and a serious assessment blog was definitely “not in the cards for me.” So…My goal right now, is to make our instructors smile…(Nice of me, isn’t it?) Anyhow…I will touch on a little bit of assessment, as I make you laugh.

Student Responses

These are actual answers given by children on science exams…!

The Grades

A high school student came home from school, seeming rather depressed.
“What’s the matter, son,” asked his mother.
“Aw, gee,” said the boy.  “It’s my grades.  They’re all wet.”
“What do you mean, “all wet?”
“I mean,” he replied, “below C-level!”

Dear Math

Dear Math,
Stop asking us to find your X.  She’s not coming back, and don’t ask Y either!

Mathematically Speaking

A high school geometry teacher started a lesson on triangles by reading a theorem.  “If an angle is an exterior angle of a triangle, then its measure is greater than the measure of either of its corresponding remote interior angles.”
He noticed that one student wasn’t taking notes, and asked him why.
“Well,” the student replied sincerely.  “I was waiting for you to start speaking English!”


Hope you have a great day, and “KEEP SMILING!”
