Complete understanding of a subject versus the ability to memorize and regurgitate facts are really interlinked.  I've thought of them as different for some time, but now I can see how these two skills are linked and how come standardized exams use them as a way to measure knowledge.

Complete understanding of a subject and seeing how it works hand-on is a skill dominated by the right brain.

Whereas the ability to memorize and regurgitate knowledge uses the left brain.  

So, how do those writing the exams know to use these two factors in designing their testlets?  I guess they majored in English!?!  :P

yes, indeed! I find I need the facts to understand the concepts, but the concepts to remember the facts. No shortage of studying to do!
