He took a filter and a case (12) of oil from the shelf. When he came to grab another case, my shop teacher asked him what he was doing. He said after putting the case of oil in, it still wasn't full. Turns out he was waiting to see the oil level appear under the valve cover! Needless to say, he was quickly transfered to wood shop.
I agree, as long as it is not enough for the crank jounals to go sloshing through the oil causing it to foam.

I re-checked last night and my oil level is now fine, it's the high end of full however, but not enough to worry about.

Funny story, but not surprised to hear actually as I have seen/heard all kinds over the years
