Teachers Revealed The Funniest Answers They’ve Gotten On Tests And I Can’t Tell If They’re Genius Or Dumb AF
The computer science course I took sophomore year of college was probably the hardest class I’ve ever taken and yet for nearly every quiz and exam question we had starting after the midterm I either drew pictures of dinosaurs fighting aliens or left it blank (can’t spoil the professor with TOO many pictures, y’know). Why not just make up an answer if I didn’t know it? Because I couldn’t even guess – everything may as well have been written in Arabic for all I could understand what I was even being fucking tested on, so why not just draw pictures and spend the class doodling instead?
I managed to pull a B- in the class since the majority of our grade was based on projects that I more or less conned our TA into doing for me – however I can’t say for sure that any of these kids via the Reddit thread “Teachers of reddit, what’s the funniest answer you’ve come across while grading papers?” passed as well:
I used to mark chemistry papers for a university. There was a question – the content I can’t recall – but an essay style answer was required. Anyway this one student had a complete mind blank and instead wrote this elaborate story about a lonely dragon who couldn’t make friends. So lots of different animals would take pity on him and try to be his friend but in his excitement he would set them on fire.
This went on for 3 or 4 sides, stopped midsentence, there was a line break, and they started the correct essay. To this day I wonder if the dragon ever made any friends without accidentally killing them, poor guy.
A third grader’s homework was to define vocab words, and one of them was “parent.”
His definition: “adults who own you”
