I have completed 2 courses through Saylor. The practice has been at the end of a topic, there is quiz, correction and rewrite of the same quiz.The instructor always provided the correct mulitple choice answer so a student could explore his errors. Also, the correction of the quiz becomes a learning experience. The other definitive practice was the meaning of “rewrite the quiz or exam” mean’t the student was faced with a repeated test and not a new one. If an instructor refuses to present corrected multiple test answers for a final and he insists on ushering in a new test or exam he ought to make clear that his practice extends to no corrections of the exam and there is no “rewrite of the test”, but a new test or exam. This proclamation ought to be made before the course begins.
Let me explain the importance of this opinion" rewrite versus new test". The student is exposed to six months of very academic work with many gigabytes of info to memorize, understand and selectively identify in the test situation. It would take the average person 6-8 week preparation to study for this “new” exam. Hence, the completion time of the course is seriously impacted.
