Assessing speaking skills of young learners and teens is often considered one of the most challenging tasks for the English language teachers. In this workshop, participants will first explore principles and task design of some of the traditional methods of assessing speaking. They will also be given opportunities to examine principles and task design of some of the alternative methods of assessing the speaking. Based on these inputs participants will develop criteria for assessing speaking in different contexts combining different methods.
