The website needs a clear information hierarchy.
About tests and quizzes
"Are you allowed to put old tests online? It’s a good idea, but do you get in trouble?"
There is some confusion about plagarism rules.
"Tests are the best way to practice."
"The quizzes have been really helpful as some of the questions are the same/similar."
Nonetheless, it's one of Mac Eng 15's most important resources.
