Test

I gave my share of TESTS and a handful of times someone would not show up for a scheduled exam.

Shortly after the scheduled time was over I would hear from those students. I then had to weigh the merit of the excuse for not showing up.

I always cringed when their story was full of drama and lacked any personal responsibility. For those that told the truth and admitted they had some accountability for the absence I sometimes afforded a make-up TEST. When the explanation lacked any accountability it was a zero.

I love the story about a university professor who was faced with the same situation. His response on handling this situation was so clever.

One night four college kids stayed out late, partying and having a good time. They paid no mind to the test they had scheduled for the next day and didn’t study. In the morning, they hatched a plan to get out of taking their exam. They covered themselves with grease and dirt and went to the professor’s office. Once there, they said they had been to a wedding the previous night and on the way back they got a flat tire and had to push the car back to campus.

The Dean listened to their tale of woe and thought. He offered them a retest three days later. They thanked him and gladly accepted his offer.

When the test day arrived, they went to the Dean. The Dean put them all in separate rooms for the test. They were fine with this since they had all studied hard. Then they saw the test. It had 2 questions.
1) Your Name __________ (1 Points)
2) Which tire went flat? __________ (99 Points)
(a) Front Left  (b) Front Right  (c) Back Left  (d) Back Right

A mistake can be compounded when you don’t add personal accountability. You will fail the TEST every time with that approach.
