Below is a copy of your post and my comments:

I'm not sure what's final exam. Maybe a new UMO Exam that contains set of
tests and problems designed by Author specifically for final exams? Or,
perhaps, Student "passes" a Course if his overall rating(score) is above
certain level set by Teacher? How do Teachers assign final exams to
Please elaborate on this.

ANS: This is for Author and/or Teacher to decide ONLY, not for us, not
for UU. We can think about tools to control "passage" - for Teachers
ONLY. Earlier we agreed that administrative block is for a next UU
version. Do we or do we not do it now? Please answer. If Author sets
"passage" rules - they  are in  course text only or  get  work
automatically - are we ready to implement this? If Teacher sets the
rules, let him control it manually or using tools we have to come up
with. Do we want and are we ready to work on them in the current
version? Please answer.

Dialogs of Texts considered "passed" if (within a given DL) user view all
of them in his browser. Not sure if clicking on links to view all the
dialog arguments should be included in the "passing" requirement.

ANS: NO NEED to control passage of this UMO at all, even in
informational sense for a student.
