I agree with you on getting rid of multiple choice tests, but disagree about "when" not being important. One needs a sense of the flow of history. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, and Barack Obama lived in different eras. Each was influenced by the time in which he lived and should be considered in that light. Their policies might have been different had they lived during a different time period.
