1 Isn’t the idea of case interviews not only to test PS skills but also client readiness/people skill? How does a written test solve for that. Yes you can have another interview round and test for that, but why not just have all those things tested in all the rounds. 2. The entire article is based on absence of data/google’s decision to abandon the case interview method. But absence of data doesn’t prove the method doesn’t work. 3. Finally not everyone is a good test taker. Abandoning case method sounds too extreme IMO. May be combining two methods like McK and BCG test with casing is the way to go.
