Abstract

Evaluation has always been an integral part of the teaching process. Learning outcomes can be set, but the teacher has to decide how well those outcomes are met, mostly by evaluating students on an individual basis. For language teachers, oral evaluation is problematic. Face-to-face interviews are the norm, but there are so many variables and constraints that consistent assessment is sometimes difficult. Using the computer as an instrument for oral evaluation can provide that consistency. A test taken on computer can reduce student anxiety and improve performance. I would like to demonstrate the innovative applications which we at UCFV have developed, and learn more about how others are using computers for second language oral evaluation.
