Testing at the FEP

Charlie Pond (FEP Instructor, 1980-85) recollections about testing.

At the FEP we taught to Learning Objectives. We stated those specific objectives and tested to assure that the stundents and instructors met them.

Most of the FEPs were college graduates. There were always some in every class that were like "Philadelphia lawyers" when it came to contesting their anwers when they were marked WRONG.

One day I reminded the class of tomorrow's final exam. I said the only excuses I would accept for not showing up were: serious injury, illness or a death in the student's immediate family.

A smart-ass Latino in the back of the room asked, "What about extreme sexual exhaustion?"

The entire class did its best to stifle the laughter and snickering. When silence was restored, I smiled and said.

Felix, you'll have to learn to write with your other hand!
