a cautionary note about pre-tests and post-tests

1. It may happen that the pre-test is knowledge-based, but the post-test is application-based, which is a more challenging test. Therefore, those being exempted from portions of the curriculum might find themselves in a bind when they attempt the post-test.
2. Since the pre-test enables a student to be exempted from portions of the curriculum, special care (against, for example, cheating via text-messaging) needs to be taken to insure its integrity.
