Open-ended questions would be very difficult, if not impossible, to program.

Duolingo has a test feature called "Stories" that is currently only available for English speaking students of Spanish and Portuguese. It lets you read and listen to a story and periodically answer questions about the story. The questions are in a variety of formats. It's pretty fun. I would love it if they'd release it for French!

Yes and no questions, where you have to echo the question might work, but I agree that the stories offer the best incarnation of this idea (roll on other languages...LOL)

It's not a bad idea to be honest. But it might be tuff for the moderators to write all the answers that are possible, no ?
