Sharing tests

As we all know, one of the most time consuming processes for teachers is
making up tests. Also, one of the best ways to find out what other teachers
think is important is to read their tests. It is also important to see how
questions are being asked.

I hope that many of us will share our tests. Even if we simply sent them in
text format most of the questions will be of value. Of course, making tests
public is a bit frightening particularly for those of us who have not taught
this course before. Our first tests may not be as good as we would like and
we certainly will miss some fine points that you experts can pick up on and
help us with.

What do others think? Are you willing to put a test out for all on the list
server to see? Perhaps it would be better to form a smaller group of people
who are all committed to let their warts show and in return receive
supportive comments from the readers.
