    I like the "ten questions:" better than a midterm / neutral / worse than a midterm .

    an interesting paper to write / neutral / a pain
    I would do the web project instead of a final exam:
    definitely project / doesn't matter / definitely exam
    Final exam I prefer:
    2-hour in-class final / take-home, word limited final / oral: groups of 3 for 10 mins.
  7. Comments. Any other comments? How is the workload?
