Small Group Structured Oral Examination: An innovation in oral Examination

Dr. T C Singel*,Dr. Chinmay shah**,Dr. Daksha dixit***.

Assessment drives learning, For the past years, we have been using an Traditional oral exam i.e. one examiner or tow examiner taking oral examination of one student, as a part of the examination process for the First MBBS formative and summative assessment. There appears to be tremendous variation on what constitutes the "traditional" oral examination. Studies analyzing characteristics of oral examinations vary most often by format and number of examiners. Considering above pros and cons of traditional oral examination and on the basis of examiners’ feedback, the new format of viva voce examination is started in the form of “Small Group Structured Oral Examination”(SGSOE). In SGSOE Students will be divided in the small group of 10 to 12 students in each group. They have to sit in chronological order in group. Two examiners will be assigned to group . For examination, according to roll no, they have to randomly select a chit from box. Than student has to give answer of main question mention in structured viva card of the topic Than rest of the students one by one, has to give answer of leading question related to that topic. after completion of Group Viva (GV) group of two examiner present at group viva will decides Marks, depending number of topic attend by all the students. Thus, It is one of the new exam systems designed to make an objective, valid and reliable assessment of different components of subject. [ Singel & Shah, NJIRM 2014; 5(1) : 141-145]
