It's hard to believe this still happens. Teachers are outraged when students look-up info rather than memorize it. For the last 25 years I've been looking up information on the computer, whether compuserve, qlink, aol, irc, ftp, or www. The last 10 years has been trivial to find anything. When teachers prioritize memorization of facts for 8 hours a day when those details could be quickly found in 30 seconds on the student's cell phone, then the student is rightfully insulted. They don't value it, because it truly isn't that valuable to memorize a large quantity of trivial facts. I'm not saying that there's no place for memorization and learning by rote, but that should be a smaller piece of the puzzle, not the biggest. Multiple choice tests are easy to cheat because they are simple. That's not good teaching or good assessing.
