An Informed Look at Doctoral Vivas (Oral Examinations) in the Preparation of Counselor Educators
McAdams, Charles R., III; Robertson, Derek L.
Counselor Education and Supervision, v51 n3 p176-188 Sep 2012
Viva voce is the Latin expression traditionally used to refer to doctoral oral examinations. Viva voce, or simply viva, examinations are a standard requirement for doctoral candidacy and degree completion in many counselor education programs. Despite the prevalent use of vivas as an assessment and learning tool, the counselor education literature is scant on information about their rationale, method, and impact. Current trends toward transparency and accountability in higher education now require that counselor educators and researchers take steps to ensure that the use of vivas is justified beyond tradition alone.
