How fair is this?

Traditional teaching promotes the idea of making summaries. Making summaries means making information less and less. This means during learning the brain is trained to reduce information. Assessment to the contrary expects from students to expand information to obtain more marks.

The question that now emerges is:  Is it fair to expect from a summary-fit brain to suddenly demonstrate expanding fitness during the exam. This is like preparing an athlete for a 100-meter race which changes the day of the competition when the athlete is required to jump over a horizontal bar.

How long is this unfair practice towards students are going to continue?
