Challenging the Algebra Regents Exam

I have a student who is challenging the Algebra Regents exam and per state ed. regulations in order for the student to get credit for the course they must:

ii. the student achieves a score of at least 85 percent, or its equivalent as determined by the commissioner, on a State-developed or State-approved assessment pursuant to section 100.2(f) of this Part;

iii. the student passes an oral examination or successfully completes a special project to demonstrate proficiency, in such knowledge, skills and abilities normally developed in the course but not measured by the relevant Regents examination or State-approved examination if used, as determined by the principal; and

My question for this group is has anyone had a student who has done this before and if so what have you used as an oral examination or special project? Also the way I read the regs. it says that the oral exam or project must demonstrate those skill that the Regents exam does not test - so I really can't design anything until after I see the Regents exam? I am looking for any help anyone is willing to offer. Thank you.
