Logic tests

A few weeks back, I was asked to put together a twenty minute logicky multiple choice test for undergraduates applying to Cambridge to read philosophy. I had better not say much here at all, but I think I managed to produce a fairly tricky paper to do in the time. I’m told that scores spread out from worse-than-chance to almost-perfect, so I guess it worked to filter out the not-so-hot reasoners. I did, though, find it surprisingly difficult to put together a template that I was happy with and which we could weave variations around. I think next year we should instead use this splendid alternative.
