PronSIG online conference in collaboration with IATEFL TEASIG

Join IATEFL Pronunciation SIG in collaboration with IATEFL Testing, Evaluation & Assessment SIG for this event, "Exploring effective pronunciation assessment practices in the English language classroom."

Whether formative or summative, assessment is a routine part of almost every English language teacher’s repertoire. However, when it comes to assessing oral communication, and in particular, pronunciation, for many years there has been an absence of specialist publications, research, and training. This has meant that teachers have often gone without guidance on best practice in the fundamentals, i.e. how to evaluate pronunciation, what features to assess, and for what purpose. 

Thankfully, in the last decade the visibility of pronunciation assessment has started to improve as studies and publications focusing on it increase. But until these changes trickle down into the mainstream, there may be teachers who still feel unprepared to tackle pronunciation assessment.

This online conference aims to highlight the process of pronunciation assessment, the challenges it can bring, and offer practical suggestions to support its implementation.
