Do it Yourself Oral Assessment: An Experiment in Evaluation
Conducted by: Daryle Nagano-Krier & Teeanna Rizkallah
This workshop will cover the development and administration of a course-embedded oral assessment measure. Since the assessment of communication skills in students is highly subjective and many instructors are uncomfortable evaluating such skills, the workshop will provide tools to administer an objective assessment with measurable outcomes.
Assessment administrators and faculty who are developing new assessments, or teaching Communication will find this tool-box approach useful in the creation of needs-specific assessments. This workshop provides a pragmatic approach to developing a workable model of course-embedded assessment.
Upon completion of this workshop, participants should be able to
adapt or adopt the SPEAKS rubric for their own use.
socialize (norm) instructors and/or evaluators appropriately
organize a baseline communication assessment.
anticipate and address communication/presentation issues on a departmental level.
