Speaking Assessments

Posted by

Many very intelligent people have said that it is important to administer a variety of assessment types for each skill set. This will give you a deeper, more meaningful understanding of your students’ proficiency in that skill area. I don’t have much trouble developing different kinds of reading, writing, and listening assessments, but I have very few speaking assessments to choose from in my tool box.

Would you mind to share some of the kinds of speaking assessments that you use?

  1. I was going to start a list, and then remembered I had one somewhere…on my own blog!

    Here’s the link: http://mjtprs.wordpress.com/2011/02/16/speaking-assessments/

    I think the key is figuring out what we’re assessing in each of these and how to communicate strengths and help kids build with each one. Lately, in our group assessments, I have only told kids that they have to have one sentence per year of study (for group stories). Now I’m going to add to that, but I think that I might want to say that they need at least two verbs in what they tell me per year of study, or something like that, depending on what we’re working on.
