I am registering a protest about the 1/24 quiz. I have used overloading before, but not having access to an Oracle instance in my current job I must rely on the documentation, so when I could not recall clearly if different types of programs qualified for overloading, it checked the documentation. The documentation reads "You can use the same name for several different subprograms as long as their formal parameters differ in number, order, or datatype family.". I even checked the definition of “formal parameters” and “actual parameters” to see if that included the program name and it does not appear to. I would like credit for the correct answer.
This is what I wrote back to the player:
One thing I have learned from the Challenge is just how lacking the documentation can be. But I cannot organize the Challenge and its quizzes solely around what is available in the official documentation.
It is definitely a bummer that you have no access to an Oracle instance when you take the quiz. I couldn't really imagine taking the Challenge and hoping to do really well just based on my memory and the documentation (though you might want to supplement your doc checks with checking my books or other resources as well!).
But I do not believe that a rescoring is required in this situation.
I would like to hear what you think about this as well.
