SKILLS 1

Solve a series of programming and multimedia challenges set by the teacher

Sample challenges are available here on this website. If you want more then please ask and I'll upload them to this site.

SKILLS 2

Skills test using Game Maker. Closed book. Develop a game with specified criteria without assistance in supervised setting

I have used two ideas for this task - soccer and street race. I have asked students to make a game under closed book supervised conditions with a time limit, which they have already made earlier in the course. My experience so far is that anything harder than that is too hard for the students I have had in my classes. Of course it depends on the ability level and amount of prior experience with Game Maker.
