Creating and Incorporating Proficiency and Performance Speaking Assessments Throughout the Curriculum

In this session, teachers will learn the difference between proficiency and performance assessments and what that means in terms of speaking. Teachers will learn how to help their students bring their level of speaking up to match (or even exceed!) their level of writing at every level of language while still maintaining grammatical and contextual accuracy.
