CONDUCTING ORAL EXAMINATIONS OVER THE INTERNET

Oral examinations are usually conducted face-to-face between examiners and candidates. This works well for a small country like Singapore where almost all examiners and candidates do not have to travel more than half an hour from their home to the examination centres. However, for international examinations offered by the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB)1 , having examiners travel to overseas examination centres is not only costly, but poses logistical challenges. To overcome these difficulties, SEAB is conducting a pilot project to explore an alternative approach to conduct the oral examinations using internet technology. This paper reports on the findings of this pilot project and shares some good practices and challenges.
