Alternatives to Final Exam

In light of the new NYS assessment schedule, my school is exploring alternatives to final exams. Our 8th grade students will be taking NYS assessments from late April until June nearly continuously. In past years we have given a math final exam the last week in June. However we are looking for alternatives to a math final.

Does anyone do a final project, presentation or anything else?
Are there any schools that have given math finals in the past and are now giving them up?

I would welcome any ideas.
