Teacher stories: "Experiences about oral examination"

In this Lunch 'n' Learn webinar Göran Manneberg talks from his many years of experiences regarding oral examination; What it is like to hold the examination digitally, and how it was evaluated by the students. He will make an attempt to compare exactly what abilities and intended learning outcomes I examined in an assignment and oral exam compared to what is examined in a traditional exam.

Time: Wed 2020-10-07 12.15 - 13.00

Lecturer: Göran Manneberg

Assignments and oral exam vs traditional exam

I started doing oral exams for higher grades for several programs in the early 2000s. The courses that were first relevant were Physics of Visual Impressions for CDEPR and Optics Higher Course for CMETE's then with specialisation on video and image. Semi-individual assignments could give the lowest approved grade and then the students could choose time for a 20 minute optional oral exam. The oral exam had a box with optical objects (camera lens, binoculars, projector lighting system, etc.) as a starting point.

In the spring of 2020, I conducted oral exams for "everyone" and I will tell you about the preparations made by me and the technologists; How it worked from my point of view, and how it was evaluated by the students. I will make an attempt to compare exactly what abilities and intended learning outcomes I examined in this form (assignment and oral exam) compared to what is examined in a traditional exam.
