For a history test, things could go like this:
Q1, 20 points: Describe in detail everything that ever happened. Use dates and names.
Q2, 20 points: What was Thomas Jefferson's wife's middle name?
This happens on multiple choice tests, too:
Q1, 5 points: Which wavelength has the highest energy?
Q2, 5 points: 2 aliens visit from Mars. Unlike, humans, their DNA consists....
>A. 1 or 2
>B. 3 or 4
>C. 5 or 6
now those questions aren't even close to the same amount of work. I got too tired making up the question to even think about solving it. I think Q1 is A, 450nm, btw.
I think you get the idea. Anyway, off to my CIS 670 final.
