This paper examines the use of an oral assessment in a unit within a Master of Professional Accounting (MPA) program. The literature identifies the need for accounting students to improve their oral communication skills and this was one of our motivations for introducing an oral assessment. We analyse the effectiveness of a one-on-one work-simulated interview through student feedback from surveys and focus groups.
