Hi Michael, Could you please give us an indication of the types of questions in the mid-semester test? Is it all theory? Will we be required to write code? Short answer? Or multiple choice? Thanks in advance!

Hi, While lecturers are professionally coy answering questions about coming exams, and always feign forgetfulness <grin>, the most truthful answer I can give right now is: I don't know. In all the years I've been lecturing, I've never set an open book exam, let alone online open book, so am currently tossing around ideas. Short answer will almost certainly be there. Coding definitely (though there is no capacity on LMS to run code, so it'll essentially be the same as the usual pencil and paper exams, except in this case it'll be typed. For the coding questions, there will be partial marks for getting the code sort-of right. There will likely be some theory. The topics covered will be L1-L8, and L9 (but only up to Shell Arithmetic). Proposal: you send me your suggestions for test questions. Of course, I will not commit to using those suggestions, or using them as you proposed them. Cheers MichaelW
