Epic Finale rather than a final?

I just read a nice article in the Chronicle that I really enjoyed, but it didn’t quite lend itself to summarization. It is a nice idea, but it completely challenges the idea of a final exam. This piece turns the final exam time from a terminal, stressful event into something that encourages the application of knowledge and the continuation of learning. Here is the link to the story:

It’s a pretty awesome and tempting idea.
