Tests, flyers and letters from the College of Wizardry

joulukuu 1, 2014

I wrote about my experiences in the Harry Potter themed larp College of Wizardry. I mentioned having the students do a test to determine their natural learning ability. Here’s a few samples of finished test papers and the results. Also included a flyer for C.A.N.D.L.E. and a letter from the Ministry of Magic.

Test answers of an anonymous student. Most ”good” answers to the questions about Unforgivable Curses resembled these.

Test answers of an anonymous student. I’m not sure, but I think this same young wizard (or witch) used to actually cast the Torture Curse (Cruciatus) on himself (or herself). Awwww. 

I have taught Writing For Interaction at university level, and know first hand that a college teacher doesn’t need to have any pedagogical skills. Imagine my surprise when my mandatory Swedish class teacher at the University of Art and Design presented the class with a test of our learning abilities, and conducted her course accordingly. I decided that my Professor Bane would be not only possibly quite evil, but actually a pretty good teacher. So he presented the students with a similar learning style test, a bit more twisted and completely unscientific, but still, more than I ever did to any class that I actually taught. Here are the results.

The results are in! Magizoologists are Verbal learners

The results surprised both me and my character. Magizoologists are Verbal learners. Fair enough. Unspeakables are Visual and Mental learners. Aurors are Visual and Kinetic (learn by doing) learners. But both Curse Breakers and even Healers are what I dubbed Dark learners. Meaning that they learn by committing crimes, inflicting pain, breaking the rules, and so on. Nevertheless, none of the Healers had any prior experience with casting Unforgivable Curses. (Unlike many other Senior students.)
