Mathematica skill level snippet(s)

I am a teacher and am often faced with the problem of how to determine 
the programming skill level for some of my students (3rd year 
undergraduates in Engineering and Physics). Knowledge of their skills in 
Mathematica can be very important for the design of student projects 
that require Mathematica.

I would appreciate suggestions for small segments of Mathematica code 
(or perhaps a single segment of increasing complexity) that could be 
used to at least get an idea of their skills in Mathematica. You can 
assume they would be using Mathematica 7.

All suggestions, examples, comments, etc. will be welcomed :-)
