Thank you so much for your help before.
REF - Assessing students objectively - Chinese students (English Majors), large classes (50-60)
I am teaching freshmen - 19 years old, in a private college in central China.
During my pronunciation classes I have to assess students with a test. However, I find the problem is that of time. I have to listen to each individual speak. Since classes are so big, I have to assess the students with just two/three minutes of time and assess them on pronunciation of various phonemes/words. I am not sure how to do this objectively. Since pronunciation can vary, but still be correct (due to American/English/Australian pronunciation) I am concerned of the best way to assess the students.
So what is the best way to assess pronunciation in a test. Assign a point for every word pronounced correctly? But even then it seems hard to assess what words are correct and what are not correct.
If you can give me any ideas I would be very grateful. Thanks Lucy!!
