Both oral and written communication skills will be assessed using paper and pencil tests as well as informal ongoing assessment using rubrics. For example, as students participate in various activities, I will be monitoring each student’s oral performance.
Paper and pencil tests may include a set of pictures requiring the student to select the one corresponding to a description that I will give orally. For example, I may have a picture of a bird, a cat, and a horse. I may then say “this animal has wings, a beak, sings, etc” and the student will have to select the appropriate answer. For written production, for example, I may require the student to write about his/her hobbies. Keep in mind that, as outlined above, the 60-40 balance of oral and written will be maintained in any evaluation.
