For trial skills and client communication though, there's only so much you can teach. Someone at the top of their class could easily be terrible at communicating with clients or presenting themselves in court, and I think a lot of exercises can quickly determine that.
Overall, I definitely agree that computer exercise is dumb.
The interview itself tests the person's communication skills, imo. I mean the really awkward people who aren't good at communicating typically can't communicate or present themselves well during an interview.
Depends. People who can communicate with people they identify as peers may not be able to handle talking to someone wearing orange. It can be night and day. Doing an exercise where you have to talk to a client in role play does have value.
