A pop quiz tonight! I hope you've been taking notes!

 Evening Greetings,

Keeping in mind the title of this witches blog, I'm setting aside the history lesson tonight to focus on something far more fun!! A quiz!  I know, I know you love taking quizzes and tests, so this should make you as happy as my mice are playing on their wheel. 

This discussion came to mind this week as I revised a test to administer tomorrow morning in class.  I have some students taking their first-year first-quarter review and some taking the first-year mid-term review.  It's funny, I remember when I started Enchantments and after the first couple of months of classes I issued a test during one class. People freaked out! Talk about test phobia!  Oh yes, by the way, it's important to point out I only teach adults. Well, some felt betrayed, some terrified and one student actually took the test, left and never came back! My, my!  I still wonder about that, as he didn't do too badly.  But no matter, I know now to inform my students that  tests are a part of the curriculum.

 I have a rotating curriculum as new students can enter the year long program anytime during the year, so I like to test them on the material I know they have experienced up to this point. Everyone is tested at the same time, just with different versions of the test, so as I put this one together this week I thought I would share with you a sample of what they will be working with tomorrow morning. 

Tonight you take the test, and everything in it has been touched on in my discussions from this witches blog.  Tomorrow I will give you the answers.  I won't print the results today as my students read this witches blog regularly, or so I like to think!
