6. Good for you and thanks from so many.
By far, the open book and take home tests require more effort, thought, and time than the multiple choice with two short essays in class. A test is a great teaching tool.

People who freeze or just don't test well, can't show what they know on an in-class multiple choice test (a classmate and good friend). Those who test well (me) end up looking like whiz-kids. We studied hard together, he taught me a lot, knew his stuff through and though. When it came to the test, however, he just couldn't perform well.

His papers and take-home work told a very different story. I know that they are a huge pain to grade and perhaps that is why they are not used as much, at least when I was in school.
