Some students may find presenting oral assessments difficult for a variety of reasons. These could include social anxiety, stuttering, or language difficulties and may lead to students avoiding and/or underachieving when making oral presentations. Being flexible about how students present oral tasks can make the difference between accurate or inaccurate assessment performance. Offering alternatives, such as having the student audiotape or video their presentation at home or present to the teacher alone, will assist these students to accurately demonstrate their academic abilities.
This practice may be particularly helpful for some students on the autism spectrum.
