I was taking the “Improved Styling with CSS” certification exams.
Part 1 was great, but the last two questions of Part 2 were extremely frustrating.
The feedback is essentially ‘take the exam again in 24 hours, but you don’t have any access to the questions you got wrong, nor is there any outline you can view covering those specific areas you were incorrect’.
The second part is that it’s just wrong. I was doing the code questions side-by-side in VSCode, achieving exactly the outcome desired, but then submitting your code to be met with “Did you include _____ in your transition?” (I was working on CSS transition properties, I used both the short-hand and long-hand in my attempts).
First time I’ve ever encountered this on CodeCademy. Hope this doesn’t repeat in the future.
This structure of hiding exam questions 24 hours only to fail again 24 hours later is no way to learn, we need to discuss a better implementation of examination.
