The use of the electronic rubric as a tool for evaluating speaking skills

IATEFL Webinar presented by Mariella Mariduena

This webinar aims to demonstrate that using the electronic rubric as an evaluation tool helps improve speaking skills based on grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, speech management, and interactive communication.

This study has a quantitative focus that allows analyzing the results of the evaluations carried out to the students. Due to its scope, it is descriptive and with a pre-experimental design. For analyzing the data, pre and post-test tests were carried out by applying parametric Wilcoxon ranges. The results show that using the electronic rubric as an evaluation tool allows to significantly increase the levels of academic performance according to the development of the productive proficiency in business English speaking.

As a result, students could express personal information and business ideas. Also, they could present a business topic and justify opinions in a discussion by applying a wide variety and number of complex grammatical structures, business vocabulary, markers of the discourse, and connectors of ideas with a clear pronunciation within a dynamic of participation.
