Exam structures

In core courses I teach, there is hardly any freedom for me to choose the method of examination. However, in my electives, I do try different methods; my favourite is a combined take-home and oral examination (in which, the students are asked to read a chapter, solve all problems and submit the same, and then come and teach that chapter to the other students). It works very well. So, I found this post at AMS graduate student blog quite interesting and useful.
