should they be graded on if you are smart, yeah. Should you need a reacharound while doing it, no.

There an answer and a bonus, "but....but....... :'("

Actually, replacing my question with your question and then replacing that doesn't qualify as giving an answer.  I'll ask again, do you disagree that tests on advanced subjects shouldn't come down to your ability to perform basic tasks?  Yes or no?

I was talking to a fellow student about this exact thing earlier today, and we theorized that professors like to go open note because the overall quality of exam probably goes up.  Which of course, doesn't benefit students so much as it benefits them.   :-\  I doubt it has much to do with not wanting to stress us out.

That's a fair point.  :D

You can insult me all you want.  It does not change the fact that you failed to answer a very simple yes or no question.

Work on that.  :)

I'm not the one trying to make noise to hide the fact that I can't answer a simple question without giving up something I don't want to.  :)

I can't believe nealric hasn't locked this thread already.  :D

While we're waiting, you should give me a yes or no as to whether tests on advanced subjects should come down to one's ability to perform basic tasks.

Guy I said yes before(even if you are too simple to get that) but they teach us to break stuff down to preschool level for the courts, so yes.............by which I mean Y followed by E followed by S........as in the opposit of no.

That was never at issue, you know it, etc,etc.

So you think tests on advanced subjects should come down to one's ability to perform basic tasks.  Got it.

See that wasn't so hard.

How does that impact the REAL question at issue(answer it dosnt) you just want to pretend to have a victory.

Explain how you think it makes ANY impact on the question we had at issue?(can you even remember any more)\
