I strongly suspect that these fallacious reasoning items are student-inspired, since the academic year has just ended and you have probably read too many final papers based on flimsy premises.

Do you ever stack papers in piles of descending sense-making? It made me start giving separate content and expression grades. The two are sometimes surprisingly far apart, but I always wanted to reward thinking and simultaneously encourage career-building writing skills.

My students don't make these errors often. I see more fallacious thinking in the general public: consumerism, conspiracy theorists, etc.
