Next week I'm evaluating all my college freshmen on their conversational English. We do oral midterms at Catholic University, so I made a study guide, an evaluation rubric, and a feedback form. Does anyone have any advice?

I don't understand what your link has to do with assessing students oral communication skills. Do us a favor and save all religious discussion for some other message boards. Let's talk about TESOL on these boards.

Hi James!

Are you touting your site?
It is very informative.

Your sheets seem to be quite acceptable.
What advice are you seeking?
I would appreciate a precise reply.

Best wishes

Perhaps I'm touting a bit, as I'm quite proud of my site, but mostly I just want to make it better.

In this specific case, the oral assessment rubric, I want to know if there are any flaws as I'm going to start using it in 13 hours...

Hi James!

I am really sorry because I was impolite and silly in my first posting.
Your site is really good!
I could not discover any flaws!

May I link it?

Best wishes

Apology accepted. Actually I wasn't really insulted (one doesn't have to be Catholic to teach or study here at Catholic University - there's a theology campus somewhere, where things might be different...)

Anyway, you may certainly link to my site.

By the way, if anyone else is still reading this thread, the assessment tool is working quite well.
