I'm taking a two day workshop at a technical institute, the instructor has said that all accredited courses must have final exams. Fair enough.
Since this is such a short course the exam will be on the same day that we are also being presented new material. This seems very strange to me, to be given an exam after approximately 5 hours of both lectures and labs throughout the day. That being said, I have a lack of academic experience, so I would like to hear from you.
Is this a common practice to have lectures and labs on the same day as an exam (of the same class)?
