DUT Guide: Strategies for criteria-aligned, fair and inclusive oral exams

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleCommunication


The oral exam is an established assessment method in Danish higher education institutions (HEIs), favoured for its focus on oracy and authenticity. The planning and implementation of oral exams in Danish HEIs’ Programmes of Study provides the context for this guide’s discussion; however, the recommendations on inclusive practices are more widely applicable. This guide reviews current understanding of how oral exams can facilitate deep learning and strategies for ensuring they are criteriaaligned, fair and inclusive. The guide comprises ten practical points and links to further resources, which include praxis-based suggestions for teachers, examiners and censors with responsibility for oral exams.
