Most teachers are looking for short, easy to grade test of knowledge that their students might know or have learned this school term. This was my easy way of just checking my own student's knowledge.
First print the answer sheet page and cut them to give one to each student. Past them out FACE DOWN and tell students NOT to touch them until told to. Remember tell them that will have only one minute to answer.
Second select a question, then read it to the student. Tell them they have 30 seconds to THINK of the answer. After 30 seconds, tell them to turn over their answer sheet and write their answers as quick as possible.
At the end of ONE MINUTE tell them to turn over the sheet and pass them up. Anyone not passing their sheet up LOSES, end of story.
The scale works because is give the students a change to "do well" and it is easy to grade. I always told my student 'If I can make out your answer ' I will give you credit." I WANT them to get the right answer, no matter how they spell it.
