Kitakyushu JALT:

Testing Interactional Speaking - A workshop

Date: Saturday, April 13th, 2013 Time: 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Speaker: Alun Roger

First, I shall summarise the theory and administration behind a group small-talk type test that targets an often under-represented facet of speaking assessments interactional language. Participants will then view video samples of the test to A) experience the test, B) experience being a rater and C) discuss their own internal constructs of the speaking skill and how they may differ from others. This discussion will be critical in allowing participants to debate the characteristics of interactional language so that they may better adapt the test to their educational contexts.
