How well do you know Church and sacraments?

It’s final exam week at WCC.  What I really wanted to do this week was work on my novel, but instead I had to write, administer, and grade a final exam for the seniors.  The result was a blend.  Here’s what the test instructions said:

I need you to help me complete a story I’ve been working on, all about a senior at Wyoming Catholic College who goes home for the holidays and meets up with some old friends.  Read the story and, where you see the prompt Short answer or Essay, fill in the appropriate answers.

It was fun to write and–from what I am told–fun to take.  If you would like to test your own knowledge, you can click here to see the exam.  But if you just want to read the final story, I used student answers (word for word, no editing!) to fill in the gaps in this version.  For variety, I picked answers from seven different students; if I had written the answers myself they would have looked different, but it’s more fun to see how the seniors collaborated with me on the project.

Fantastic! This approach definitely encourages the students to think concretely about the significance of what they have learned.
