  •  My problem with the test is that it only rewards (0+ / 0-)

    the final result, without really rewarding understanding.

    What I mean is this:

    That "gyrating" function question is worth 1 point. Either you get ALL of the terms, and get the point, or you get nothing if you miss anything.

    What I would do is double or even triple the point value of each question, and allow students to EXPLAIN their work for partial credit (somewhere between 1/3 and 2/3).
