I’ve just done the theory test, following a Module 2C course on Saturday. (An excellent day, thank you, Graham!)
Happily I passed – but I was somewhat distressed to score five “wrong” answers. Every one of them was one where I had had to think carefully, not about which answer was “right” – but about which answer was “most right”. It is, I suppose, the inevitable problem of trying to fit a nuanced “analogue” topic into a stark digital format.
“What is heartening about a practice?” – I avoided the “correct” answer (that they keep coming back) in favour of the “wrong” one – which spoke about the basic reason WHY they keep coming back. I’ll not give all of the questions away (!) but each one is open to discussion and interpretation.
Among the 30 questions there are, indeed several “digital” questions, but I confess that I was left, feeling just a bit ill-served by a process that doesn’t very well match the infinitely variable challenges of teaching new ringers. I have no idea what could be done about this – even IF anything could be done – but that’s my twopenny-worth on the experience!
(At least I passed!)
