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.
