As we are currently revising/auditing our course offer, this may become a possibility.
Most of the exams were created before we had many of the options that we do now. I do believe you will be happy when you start seeing some of the exams/courses that are in the works now.
With regards to manhours though: The SA employs 19 dedicated graders, who manage to do the job with finesse and speed. Last month, the average grading time (for solo courses) was between 7 and 8 hours (and considering the average humanoid sleeps 8 hours a day, we’re very happy with that number). For shared courses this number went up to 24h. I don’t think these numbers are that bad though. True, they seem long when considered the Journeyman Hall has an average of 1minute (glitch at one point). But the exams will keep having questions where your opinion is asked. Parroting data can be handy to check insights, but it is from reading how a member thinks about something (“in his own words”) that we can see if the exams are helpful/informative.
We are even planning stuff that will require the member to “do”. To put the notes to practice.
Overall, I hope this answered your comment. Your input was greatly appreciated! If there are still things unclear, or you have another question, don’t hesitate to ask it okay?
