Tests given in Advanced Reporting are primarily objective exams. They test your recall and application of the material discussed in class, the labs and the assigned reading.
Most questions will be short answer / fill in the blank types of questions. There will also be multiple choice, matching and true / false questions. Typically, you can expect about 15-20 per cent of an exam to be calculated at challenging better prepared (A and B) students. About 10-15 per cent will be easy. The rest will be somewhere in between.
In some cases (especially the final) you may expect the exam will have practical / lab segments in which you demonstrate that you can apply what you have learned in a working situation.
