academic demands and stress.written by red marker

Good article!

When I was teaching, I would do the following:

  • substitute the final for an authentic design project (like designing a carbon-free swimming pool heat exchanger)
  • give a final exam to test the fundamentals of the course content
  • offer a partial exam on last material (at my university we usually gave 2-3 partial and 1 final exam).
