The Perfect Exam

Educational experts, businessmen and politicians constantly bicker about what constitutes a good method of examining and grading students.

Forget about three hour structured tests and case studies, that focus on peoples' abilities to regurgitate "crammed" facts.

Put the candidate in a room for 24 hours, with an unlimited supply of paper. Ask the candidate to write all he/she knows about absolutely everything.

Now that's the perfect exam.
