What about an excrutiatingly large question pool designed for adaptive
testing? Integration of free-response/essay questions? A live-distro
that requires actual skill to accomplish a real task that can be
recorded and graded or automatically analyzed? The key I would think
would be to make the testing as multi-faceted as possible with
emphasis on skill and knowledge.
