As part of my year's end final this year, I used something I call, "Tic-Tac-Test." I told my students that they must respond in writing to three of the prompts listed in the cells. But, just like in regular tic-tac-toe, they must choose three prompts running vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. I have included a screenshot of what I used.
The kids never enjoy one of my tests, but they came close to it on this one. It's game-like, and they have the option to choose what they want to write about.
