I would make a test where the questions are not multiple choice, but essay type. Write a module to do this... Also people would then get high scores for creativity

    This, however, presents the rather serious problem of subjectivity. What makes something "creative"? What makes one solution more creative than another? Unless you could come up with an objective standard for determining the creativity of a solution to a problem, awarding something that should be objective, like a certification, becomes meaningless.
