I gave my honors physics classes a 14 question test. 13 of the questions involved critical thinking and problem solving (diagrams and math). I thought I would be nice and allow this to be open notes, so students could see plenty of sample problems we had done in class and on homework. Disappointment #1: Honors students needed 2 full class periods (100 minutes) to complete this test. Disappointment #2: One third of the students failed. Guess I will prepare to have lots of requests for tutoring appointments next week.
