More Grading questions...INE labs and the Real thing
As I stated in a previous post I'm hitting Vol2 hard over the next couple of weeks. I was reading lab 1 tonight and noticed something on the grading that confused me.
It says that a 'section must work 100%' under the grading description. Does that mean for example in IPv4 that all tasks under IPv4 must be 100% correct? In lab 1 IPv4 is 12 points - if I don't get 2.1, 2.2 and 2.3 100% correct - I get zero points for the IPv4 section? OR is it that 100% of the bullet points in 2.1 must be correct for me to get the full 4 points for 2.1. But if I were to get 2.1 partially wrong, I wouldn't get those 4 points but I might still get the points for 2.2 and 2.3 if they are correct?
I hope that makes sense - it's a big difference. I have taken the real V4 exam and failed the troubleshooting section by 1 task (ran out of time) back in October of '09. During the config section I didn't try very hard which resulted in a not so shockingly low score for that section on my score report.
I'm wondering how the real lab is graded if it is the same way (makes sense that these practice labs would be designed with the same grading in mind).
If it is truely based on the entire 'Section' like IPv4 or IGP and any sub task (2.1,2.2,2.3) points are unattainable if one of them is wrong in some way - what is the point of separating the point value out per 'task'? If that is the case...man...it's sobering.
I failed the v3 exam unfortunately back in August of '09 and that sucked, the OEQs got me. The grading on that test was points per 'task' and my score report reflected a very nice passing score on the configuration section (too bad I had that goose egg next to OEQ).
