Which Is Easier Open-book Examination Or Without Support Material ?

When I’m in class, explaining Statistics II, I believe that all students have basic knowledge of mathematics and basic statistics. Statistics II is a matter of 4th semester of Computer TSU institute where I teach, 4th semester is 66.6% of the race, but in the group of students are: those who are ignoring scientific calculator and handling ; those who sit behind forming a group of a talkers and do not take notes, using the technologies of photographing the board, those who sit first and write down everything that is exemplary and involved notes in class, the quiet they are barely perceptible, among others. The first day of class are taught the rules of the game in the field of Statistics II, planning of activities to satisfy, content, test dates, in the latter information in the various courts will exercise guidelines and testing should be to open book that can bring all the material wish, but that individual is not suitable material. The almost universal reaction is very difficult tests Ason!, My answer is: be as difficult as they do not know the objective to evaluate, who know they have listed on your notebook, not to do the exercises in the guide and not practice. An open-book test requires more study less than a traditional test, ie no reference material at the time of the transaction. With a guide to more than 36 years of Statistics in court, it is likely that in the test are similar problems, the same or combinations of any of them.

Submit an open-book test with notes of another, without having done the exercises in the guide, is to pass the test time (90min) reviewing the notebook to see what you find. In short, you end up with one or two complete problems, and perhaps with only one good. If you have a study guide, you have to do it, you have to consult books, try to bring the problems they solved or proposed. Bill Phelan has similar goals. Make as many of you see Internet. Each teacher has a very particular teaching since written on the blackboard, he began his explanation to the student’s attention. You job is to use the tools that offers a teacher, lecturer and instructor, whatever you call it, and build your knowledge, skills and abilities. Depends only on you that you grow and mature in the pursuit of knowledge, that throughout your life becomes the search for solutions to your professional life. Look, see, read, understand, practice. Build your knowledge!
