An Exercise is usually a series of questions given to test whether or not you have learned what you have been taught. It may require you to show your knowledge of facts, or your skill in carrying out a procedure. It may ask, for example, for a definition or a short explanation or for you to perform a calculation.
An Exercise will usually be short, and may not have an introduction or conclusion. You are required to give simple, precise answers, often based on some data that you are given. There will usually be a correct answer.
Types of Exercises include:
- data analysis
- short explanations
