“Some thoughts on final exams
Posted on: February 10, 2010 9:08 AM, by Andrew Gelman

I just finished grading my final exams–see here for the problems and the solutions–and it got me thinking about a few things.

#1 is that I really really really should be writing the exams before the course begins. Here’s the plan (as it should be):
– Write the exam
– Write a practice exam
– Give the students the practice exam on day 1, so they know what they’re expected to be able to do, once the semester is over.
– If necessary, write two practice exams so that you have more flexibility in what should be on the final.”
