And so it ends …

May 4, 2010

Today is the last day of teaching for me this semester. Running some evaluations for my honors seminar but little else. Yesterday, Origins, Evolution & Creation ended with the final examination – 30 questions in 45 minutes. I told my TA that the first person to finish would do so in nine minutes … and I was bang on the money. Weird.

Some things to take care of and then I can look forward to a summer of writing (at least two papers – one history and one science – and a handful of book reviews) and travel (no Europe this year, just Minnesota and Michigan, the latter twice). I also need to recuperate … it was a relatively tough semester.

    Enjoy your break. I have enjoyed the insights into your course and content that you have given us here and can understand the need for a break!

    Sounds like it was a tough one. Long time no see – the four of us (or four + kids) should grab a beer next week. Then my summer madness begins – I have about three weeks to finish putting together 19 lectures. Any chance you’d send me your final exam? I’d love to see it, just out of curiosity. Wonder how I would do. :-)

    Did the person actually finish? I’ve found that sometimes the people who turn their tests in really early do so because they realized they don’t know the answers to 90% of the questions and just gave up.

    They scored 27 out of 30. I’ve generally found that the early finishers do well.
