Stupidest exam questions

11 posts in this topic

Another thread just reminded me of a really dumb question I got as part of a Popular Music elective.

A listening question. They played a track from Metallica (can't remember which one, not a single).

This is:

a. The Rolling Stones

b. Metallica

c. Nirvana

d. AC/DC

That's probably the first time I've laughed out loud in an exam.

I remember the first question on my government HSA (High School Assessment, a state-mandated test administered as part of No Child Left Behind) from last year.

1. What is the role of a jury in a criminal trial?

a--To inform the public, via the media, on the proceedings of the trial

b--To make sure that the judge overseeing the trial remains impartial

c--To reach a verdict as to the guilt or innocence of the accused, based on the facts presented during the trial

d--To grade the attorneys' performance

It is common knowledge that the HSAs are complete jokes, written by people who are barely proficient in spelling and basic grammar, let alone the subject you're being tested in.

I figured they'd have slotted Van Halen or RUSH in there, instead of the Rolling Stones...

That elective sounds pretty fun though. I ought to look for a similar elective when I go course hunting in the near future.

I was taking a skills assessment test the counselors at school were giving out for people to see what kinds of careers should people should go into and one of the questions was:

"Do you enjoy sitting in towers watching for forest fires?"

:scratchchin:

PCS raises hand for the answer - Forest Ranger or Smokey Bear. :lol:

It was probably "Blackened"...I have found music teachers (especially, music appreciation teachers and the like) typically play that song. Usually for the intro/crescendo.
