Berube on Take-Home versus In-Class Exams

See this interesting blog post (and the comment thread on it) from Michael Berube on whether professors should give take-home or in-class exams.  Largely for the reasons he discusses (a desire for a kind of universal design, so that students with the kinds of disabilities that affect speed get sufficient time but don't have to take the exam under different conditions than anyone else), I have moved almost entirely to take-home finals.  But the comment thread has a useful discussion of the pluses and minuses of that decision.
