Oral examinations still occur for the doctoral thesis, the legal moot court and many postgraduate medical programmes (Joughin 2007). In mathematics service units at tertiary level, students anticipate that the assessment may consist of written tests and/or assignments, online quizzes, and a final examination....   [tags: Education ]
