Hybrid Closed-book, Open-book exams

Next week, in both my AI classes, undergraduate and graduate, I will do the following experiment:

"The first half of the exam will be closed book. After you hand in your answers to the first part, the remainder of the exam will be open book. This is a strategy to evaluate your performance under both conditions."

I will update this posting after I grade the (four) exams.

Note of 8/26/2007: The exams appeared to be useful. In fact, a number of students in the classes thought the idea was just fine. So I'll continue to do this in my upcoming classes, though not necessarily for every exam.
