Introduction
At the request of his colleague, the author worked as a referee on the grading of an examination question. Unusual as the student’s answer was, it convinced the author that the student stood for full credit. Moreover, the student offered another three unusual answers to the same question afterwards, but he said nothing about the usual one. Later he told the author why he had given such an unexpected answer to the question on the test. The student was actually bored with high school and college instructors, who had been trying to teach him to use the “scientific method” in a pedantic way. And he wanted to show his discontent in disguise of a fool.
Preview Questions

  1. What do you think of our college grading system?
Our college grading system is normally based on a 100-point (score) system. Other typical grading system may be based on a scoring range from A to E in which A stands for “excellent”; B “very good”; C “good”; D “pass” and E “fail”. At some universities, teachers may use other forms of grading.

  2. If you failed in you final exam, how would feel? And what would you do?
Normally in this case, most students would say that if they failed in their exam, they would feel very bad, but they would not give up. They would pluck up their courage, face the challenge and try again. Guide their conversation so that they may ask why they failed. Is it because they focused on the text too much, ignoring building up their problem-solving ability?
Is it because some exam questions have nothing to do with their lecture notes or assignment reading? Or is it because they could not concentrate during the exam because of overnight preparation? Or, to think otherwise, their teachers have put in some silly questions (or questions too difficult) for them? Instead of trying to do better in a “make-up
