Testing, I Hardly Know You

Every so often, I come across something that I just hadn't imagined. Here's today's example: Scratch off test forms. They look like the scratch off lottery tickets in convenience stores.

Except, you know that's not what popped into my mind when I saw them, right?

Because I'm old enough to have seen Polyester in Odorama.

You have to be thinking what fun the Odorama version of the Summoner's Tale would be!

In all seriousness, though, these cards are touted as a wonderful way to verify that students have done whatever in a way that promotes learning. I bet scratching off bad smells would promote learning even faster! Get it wrong, farts! Get it right, the sweet smell of success.

The next question (and this is a quiz, so imagine you get a scratch and sniff card) is: what brought this to my attention today?

  1. Perhaps dividing a fart along the spokes of a wheel in order that it might be enjoyed broadly and justly?
