The Cheat Sheet as Pedagogical Tool
Occasionally computing courses cover a wide range of "prose" material. Testing students' understanding of such material is commonplace in the humanities, the social sciences, and many aspects of business. There the essay is often a preferred means for this assessment. For a variety of reasons, however, essays are not always appropriate in Computer Science (CS), leading to more traditional, short test items over a huge amount of material. Guidelines are presented here for the use of the help ("cheat") sheet as an aid and supplement for student study and exam preparation.
