In high school, for tests we were told to make sure that all our answers were in MKS (meters, kilograms and seconds) or just in SI units in general. For Lavelle’s exams are there specific units that he expects all answers to be converted to?
I would expect that he would want us to write our final answers in SI units unless otherwise stated, like if the final answer is looking for an answer in g as opposed to kg. I do know that our TA's are grading our exams, therefore it might vary per TA too.
I think we should still be using the SI units that we learned in high school (kg, m, L, etc.) just to be safe. Unless otherwise specified in a problem, those units are the standard for calculating chemistry (and other subjects') problems. Then again, I would also suggest asking your TA if you're really worried about it.

In response to your question, I think it would be very likely that these conversions would be given if they are necessary. I cannot say for certain whether or not this is the case, though. I recommend asking during office hours or sending an email if you are concerned.
