Heeeeey, one of my other LJ friends was an AP World History grader this year, and she was amused by all the THIS IS SPARTA references. Except apparently it made sense in the context of the essays?
Man. If something like Facebook had existed when I took the AP exams, I totally would have done something like that. As it stood, my US History classmates left inside jokes in our essays in case our teacher read them, and I left cartoons for all my graders on the AP Stats exam.
Somehow, I find the idea that someone managed to rickroll their grader even more impressive given that it was a written exam.

See, that's the part that doesn't work. ETS is crazy about integrity when it comes to exams. In the unlikely event that your teacher happened to be the person who read that question, and recognized the inside joke, (s)he'd have to immediately give the paper to someone else to read and score ... which creates all sorts of problems.

Now that we appreciate ... the laughter is wonderful. :)
