Assessing learners' speaking skills | Language Assessment | Scoop.it

Oral Language, Assessment, and Metacognition with VoiceThread « Blogg'u'ca'tion

Oral Language, Assessment, and Metacognition with VoiceThread « Blogg'u'ca'tion | Language Assessment | Scoop.it

The author provides an example of VoiceThread use in the classroom in which the teacher has provided active reading prompts that elicit personal connection, reflection, and comprehension.

Students are also asked to provide supporting detail from the text as evidence. By providing an oral forum for student expression the students are provided an opportunity to explore thoughts beyond written word and traditional textual activity.
