If there are any professors in the audience...

...if anyone reading this is a university professor, please, I would like some speculation to the following question:

How is an in-class essay superior to a take home essay?

I'm not saying the in-class essay is the hallmark of a bad professor. My favourite professor of the past two years gave us an in-class essay. But my issue is with the fact that...well, you're doing all the research. A paper is a paper, and I'd think that typed ones double spaced in size 12 Times New Roman on single sided white paper stapled together at the top left-hand corner would be easier to read than 2 exam booklets crammed full of a badly hand written essay.

I'm honestly questioning this methodology.

They're not better.

They're _shorter_.
