Description

Chapter 4 deals with interactive speaking tests that are tapping into an interactive listening construct. The chapter shows the extent to which interactive speaking tests (e.g. the interview format, peer-peer format) are testing test-takers’ listening ability as well as speaking ability, and how interactive listening skills can be assessed through speaking tests. In both chapters, the authors discuss how rating scales and rating systems can cater for the assessment of interactional competence and interactive listening skills.
