Oral Evaluation Rubric

        3         Complete. The speaker clearly conveys the main idea and provides                            details that are relevant and interesting.

        2        Generally complete. The speaker conveys the main idea but does not                        provide adequate relevant details to support it.

        1        Incomplete. The main idea is unclear. Much of the detail is irrelevant or                    non-existent.   


      3        Comprehensible. The speaker uses appropriate language to convey the                     main idea of this item clearly.

        2         Generally comprehensible. The message is unclear in places. The                             language used is inadequate to make the message totally clear.

        1        Incomprehensible. The message could only be understood by a                                 sympathetic native speaker. The language used is often distorted by                         interference from English.


        3         The student speaks very clearly without hesitation. Pronunciation and                         intonation sound natural.

        2        The student speaks with some hesitation. Problems with pronunciatio do                     not prevent communication.

        1        The student hesitates frequently. Problems with pronunciation distort                         meaning and inhibit communication in some instances.


        3        Functions, grammar, and vocabulary are used correctly.

        2        Minor problems in usage do not distort meaning or inhibit                                         communication.
        1        Problems in usage significantly distort meaning or inhibit communication.


        3        Excellent. The student rarely refers to the note cards.

        2        Fair. The student often refers to the note cards.

        1        Poor. The student reads most of the presentation from the note cards.
