    Exams often do little more than measure a person’s ability to take exams. Should exams be outlawed in favor of another form of assessment? This is a large issue in the world today as many institutions and c

    • Hey Sean, I think this is a great idea for a paper. This idea has more than enough information create the long informative essay we are looking for. Not only should you look into whether or not tests help, but the alternative options too.
