    When I give multiple-choice exams, the actors are matched to their roles: (P)laintiff, (D)efendant, (W)itness, etc. I then pick completely random words beginning with that letter for each question (“Walla Walla testifies for Persepolis in his breach-of-contract suit against Dogma.”). It keeps the question-writing process interesting and students have said they like it.
