    Teacher gives ‘plot twist’ exam, provides answers and lets students figure out the question

    MANILA, Philippines – While most teachers create exams wherein they provide the problems or questions for the students to answer, there is an educator who went viral after giving a ‘plot twist’ exam. In this test, the teacher provided all the correct answers – and the students have to figure out the question!

    A teacher named JP Peñol in Iloilo City, central Philippines, posted part of the test paper he made for his students in what appears to be a recent test. A number of netizens might recall that Peñol was actually a Former Commissioner at the Office of the President for the National Youth Commission (NYC).

    In this particular test that he posted online, Peñol provided the students with the “correct answers” by encircling a letter from one of the options in what would have been a multiple choice exam. He was not actually spoon-feeding the students. The ‘plot twist’ there is that though they were given the ‘answer’, they were supposed to figure out what could have been the question.

    Peñol gave them 2 points for each correct answer; though he did not mention whether he might give 1 point for a slightly correct or incomplete question.

    While it is an unconventional way to give a test, Peñol’s method drew praise online. Many netizens believe it is a good gauge whether the students truly understood their lessons. And while some of the items had several possible answers, such as the item about Manuel Quezon, Peñol expects his students to know what he is actually referring to, based on their lessons.

    The ‘plot twist’ exam impressed a lot of netizens but it got someone asking, “So kung ung sagot sa exam ay tanong, tanong pa rin ba tawag dun?” LOL.
