For the past 3 or 4 years, R. Lynn Bradley has included cartoons on his exams. Previously, he collected cartoons dealing with the material that he teaches. It occurred to him that including cartoons on exams might help relieve some of the anxiety that accompanies test taking. He finds that the interspersion of cartoons on his exams works well. He’s received several favorable comments from students and heard “chuckles” during some exams. One colleague started using cartoons to go with her lectures, which Bradley also does.
