Unit 5 - hackathon vs. test

I am looking at the timing of the unit 5 lesson and based off of the timing of the course with winter break, I was wondering if it would be possible/recommended to give the assessment (lesson 18) prior to the hackathon (lessons 13-17). That way, the kids can continue to work on the hackathon over winter break if they do not complete it in class. Thanks!

I looked at the assessment questions and I don’t see anything on the assessment that the students shouldn’t know before they begin the hackathon so I don’t think there would be any issue giving the assessment first.
