Viva-voce assessment has been of interest since early 20th century. It was derived from Medieval Latin in 1815 and was defined as “an examination conducted by speech or assessment in which a student’s response to the assessment task is verbal, in the sense of being expressed or conveyed by speech instead of writing” (Pearce & Lee 2009). Assessment can be conducted by one or more assessors.
A Viva Voce can be delivered in the following ways during the COVID-19 situation as an alternative to a paper-based final examination:
