Abstract

The conceptual understanding presents a key component of science expertise, and thus the most desirable outcome of science education process. However, reports in the literature describe the opposite reality. The viva voce assessment is probably the oldest type of knowledge examination. Yet, contemporary issues such as the continued expansion of the curricula at all levels of education, large lecture at tertiary level and many other objective reasons, have made written exams more widespread in the teaching practice. Unfortunately, this has made many students learning for tests, and many teachers teaching to the test, thus ultimately turning teaching practice into students’ preparation to test well.
