I am on record as being opposed to multiple choice philosophy tests. But suppose I have been tapped to teach a large introduction to philosophy course that will meet in a humongous lecture hall, and that I won't have any TAs or help with the grading, but I will have 150 students in this one ginormous class. I'm thinking that multiple choice might be the way to go. But I still sort of worry that these things are frowned upon. Suppose I get a nice interview at the APA, and the committee says, "I see you've got a humongous lecture class here. How'd you do it?" If I say, "Multiple choice tests..." will I be fucked? Or will the people be understanding and merciful? I plan to work in some in-class writing, but this wil have to be highly informal. What do the Smokers think?
