Can testing be … fun?

“Writing a good test is hard. I think it is reasonable to ask how we can make test-taking as interesting a learning experience as we try to make lectures, essay assignments, and other components of our courses. To do this, we need to interrogate the types of tests we took as students and learn from the ones that seemed to actually engage our learning and the ones that did not.”
