I think you have a good point about exams having to be monitored.
Modern technology can sometimes become cheating technology. As for the
length of the exam, that would be completely up to the exam writer.
And, yes, the exams can be timed. If you'd like (assuming you have a
Mac), take a look at it by typing "ExamMaster" into Macupdate's search
box and downloading it.
Thanks for you suggestions.
