This research delved into a comparison between the performance of graduate students from a reputable university in the bustling city of Manila. Specifically, the study examined the outcomes of comprehensive examinations administered via online platforms versus the traditional in-person method. With a sample size of 87 graduate students who underwent the online examination during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, and 107 students who took the onsite examination in 2022, a comprehensive analysis was conducted. The study expounded on the application of controls proposed by various esteemed authors for the design of online examinations, as they were implemented in the comprehensive examination. The findings remarkably demonstrated an elevated level of success among the participants who took the online examination, surpassing their counterparts in three out of the four covered areas. In conclusion, this study has revealed a noteworthy disparity in the grades attained by students who took the online examination as opposed to those who underwent the examination in person. This serves as a testament to the effectiveness of the measures employed in the design of online examinations and the potential for its widespread adoption in the future.
