In this session we will present practical classroom-based approaches which involve students hands-on from day one of a course with:

  • diagnostic assessment of oracies (listening, speaking and pronunciation)
  • self and peer assessment of spoken performance
  • addressing assessment criteria relevant to subject-specific outcomes, employment and individual needs

Presenters: Glenice Aiken and Marina Pearce
