30 April 2020: Authentic online oral assessment - an examination replacement

Presenters: Danielle Logan, Popi Sotiriadou and Rae Jobst (Griffith University, Australia)

Concerns about academic integrity and student engagement have been tightened with the rapid COVID-19 induced shift to online teaching and the need to use alternate assessments to that of traditional exams. This session explored an approach to interactive online oral assessment can be used to create engaging, authentic assessment experiences for students. Interactive orals are especially useful in the current COVID-19 context because they can be conducted online and offer a viable alternative to exams. The session covered examples from the Griffith Business School at Griffith University and data collected from students on academic integrity. The use of evidence-based assessment design has seen benefits in enhanced student engagement, employability and academic integrity in undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
