Assessing Speaking/Listening Competencies through Experiential Activities.
This paper offers three experiental assessment procedures for speaking/listening competencies. First, five important elements in assessing speaking and listening are presented: defiinition; the establishment of a specific purpose for the assessment; determining what is being measured; identifying the type of communication being assessed; and a standardized or acceptable means of quanityfing what is being assessed. Maintaining that it is precisely because of these considerations that experiential assessment is a natural choice for speaking and listening skills, the paper then presents experiential assessments for presentational listening, presentational speaking, and interpersonal communication listening skills. For each of the three assessments, the paper describes the criteria for assessment of the competency, lists the skills the competent communicator will have, and presents the assessment procedure and a rating sheet. (Fourteen notes are included and an appendix contains a script used in the interpersonal listening skills assessment.) (SR)
