Description
Testing for oral and aural competencies still relies on a paper-and-pencil format with outdated audiocassettes and recorders that provide poor sound quality and take considerable time to administer and score. Testing for oral and aural skills, therefore, is impractical and quite often counterproductive. Internet technology has changed this scenario substantially and in an effort to address the concerns of time constraints and obsolescence and place high priority back on the very competencies that we stress in class, I propose administering oral and aural testing via computer. This will facilitate and expedite test administration and evaluation and offer a highly interactive and technologically advanced examination.
