I am not writing any tests. I am supposed to teach what other people decide should be taught and then give the tests other people write. If not for data requirements and the many, many meetings, I might even have some free time. So I won’t take the blame for the problem that asked if the particles in a liquid are close together or far apart.
Student answer: Far apart/close together. I am giving credit, too. Look at the ocean. Some of the particles in that liquid are very far apart. Others are right on top of each other. Kudos to my student, although I had some doubts about the part where he described one physical property of a pop can as “the top is open, inside bugs.”
Eduhonesty: Maybe he needs to cover his cans.
