The existing proofs accepted as valid can be used as building blocks for the next steps. @Thomas Okken: yes, in my view a test should verify that one knows the curriculum and at the same time it may rank students in terms of "this student has mastered this better than the other". Therefore in my view would be ok that until 90% of the maximum mark the test is based on "are you able to solve by yourself what was solved in class?". While the rest 10% of the marks are "are you able to solve by yourself this problem that we did not solve in class, but that you have the building blocks to solve it?" Plus also the observation of AlexFekken is important, I have similar anectdotal evidence. @Paul: thanks for the link. Wikis are great, Contribute :)
