Heads or Tails: Direction

Heads or Tails: Direction - headsortailshome.blogspot.com/

How well do you follow directions? Find out here: www.justriddlesandmore.com/direct.html
Let me know how well you did! I passed :)


Here is another test: www.sir-ray.com/Directions%20Test.htm

1. Read all of the following directions before you do anything.

2. Print your name, last name first then your first name and middle initial (if you have one),

at the top of the page.

3. Draw a line through the word "all" in direction 1.

4. Underline the word "directions" in direction 1.

5. In direction 2, circle the words "your first name."

6. In direction 3, place an "X" in front of the word "through."

7. Cross out the numbers of the even-numbered directions above.

8. In direction 7, cross out the word "above" and write the word "below" above it.

9. Write "Following directions is easy" under your name at the top of the page.

10. In direction 9, add the following sentence after the word "page": "That's what you think!"

11. Draw a square in the upper right-hand corner of this page.

12. Draw a triangle in the lower left-hand corner of this page.

13. Place a circle in the center of the square.

14. Place an "x" in the center of the triangle.

15. Now that you have read all of the directions as instructed in direction 1, follow directions

2 and 16 only.

16. Please do not give away what this test is about by saying anything or doing anything to alert your classmates. If you have reached this direction, make believe you are still writing. See how many of your classmates really know how to follow directions.

    Will you visit mine Thanks

  2. Thanks for visiting and for commenting.

  3. hehehehe

    I remember doing similar test.

    thanks for stopping by.

  4. I'll be back later to take the tests. I'm in a rush right now.

  5. I was forced to do a few "directions" exams in college. Thank goodness I passed. Hehe

  6. Awesome Linda :) thanks for stopping by.

  7. Ah ... this brings back mem'ries of my days in the classroom. I used something similar multiple times throughout the school year and was always amazed at the kids who didn't seem to learn from experience.
    Hugs and blessings,

  8. Yikes. I didn't do very well. I did everything. LOL

  9. Thanks for visiting Storyteller and Skittles!

  10. I remember taking this in real life one time and didn't do so well! Grin. Nice post!

  11. I'll have to try the tests when I brain is more awake ;)

  12. My brain doesn't wake up until after lunch!

  13. My work computer classified the 1st one as a "game" & blocked me, but that 2nd one was very cute!! :)

  14. Ooops...sorry about that bundle-o-contradictions!

  15. We have done that bottom one at work and with our Scout troop, usually get half of them who mess up. Great post for today. Mine is up @ The Cafe if you are interested.

  16. Thanks for sharing. I like doing tests like this.

  17. I have used this before in my classroom. It is funny how many kids don't read directions...or they read them wrong and don't do what they are asked to do. Do you think that there should be a class on following directions? But how could be give directions about following directions if they didn't know how to follow directions? (Wow...I just made myself a little dizzy!)

  18. You made me dizzy too! BUT you made me think...which is good.

  19. whoah! what a test... :p

  23. Ah, yes. The direction test. Failed by most over-achieving students who just want to finish first!

  24. Yay! I passed! Taking a similar test in 5th grade taught me an important lesson which I utilized here, though.

    Thanks for visiting me earlier!

  25. Forgetfulone...you are right! Even when I was in college I found that to be true (I thought kids would out grow wanting to be first after high school).

    Smarmoofus...Good job on passing.
