Evaluating Classroom Speaking.
Bock, Douglas G.; Bock, E. Hope
As one of a series of sharply focused booklets based on concrete educational needs, this booklet provides teachers with educational theory and research on evaluating classroom speaking and presents suggestions for the application of the theory in regular classroom situations. The section on theory and research begins by describing a model of the evaluation process, then discusses various rating errors in the evaluation process. With the theoretical basis for rating and speech evaluation in mind, the section on practice examines several teaching issues that emerge when actually rating speeches in the classroom setting. These issues include when and how to evaluate speaking performances, the modes of evaluation, who should make the evaluations, and suggestions for constructing an evaluation instrument. The concluding section contains sample copies of 13 evaluation forms and descriptions of their intended uses. A list of references is provided. (RL)
