An amendment to Elimination of Cheating

Multiple choice questions are unrealistic. When you go into the real world with real problems, you are not usually faced with four answers to choose from, with only one of them being correct.

The thing is, if you're training people to think that there is one correct answer, when in all honesty their never is, you're setting them up for failure.

Assigning tasks that are open for interpretation with unlimited answers gives a realistic way to go about answering life's problems. It also gives people a chance to show their identity in their work, leading to higher satisfaction.
