It’s creeping toward the end of the academic year for many teachers around the world, and in Australia, the first break of the year is just 4 weeks away. In today’s post I’d like to pose a question.
How do you organise your speaking assessment items?
It can take a lot of class time for students to deliver prepared speeches or simulated dialogue, not to mention the time it takes to set up and pack up, and for the tasks that we teachers need to complete. Lets start a conversation about this important aspect of being a Languages teacher.
*Do you take notes during the assessment item, immediately after, or after the lesson?
*Do you record speaking assessments for analysis at a later time?
*Do you give immediate feedback?
*What are your other students doing during when your attention is directed to speaking assessments?
*Do you have any hints for efficiently implementing speaking assessments?
*Do you timetable assessment outside of class time?
*Do you allow digital copies of students’ speaking to be submitted, or do you require ‘real time’ delivery?
