Welcome to information about the Oral Communication Assessment Programme with Ten Feet Tall. Please scroll down for a Chinese translation of this information.
Selected extension students Year 4+ and all Year 2-3 students will be registered for Speech New Zealand Oral Communication Assessments.
This is a short group assessment of your child’s oral language skills. This provides your student with an opportunity to demonstrate their developing oral language skills. Students work on a range of skills appropriate to their age level, including: extempore talks; reciting a drama, poem or story; discussing ideas with the assessor; reading aloud, telephone/role play and social speeches [middle school students].
Year 4+ students: Friday 31st July and Friday 7th August
Year 2-3 students: 21st, 22nd and 23rd September
The assessor will be provided by Speech New Zealand and come to Kristin School. Students will come out of class at scheduled times throughout the day and attend the assessment in small groups. Students will recite a poem in pairs, present a talk and answer questions from the assessor about their work. The main goal of the assessment to encourage and reward students for their hard work.
Following the assessment, students will receive an individual report which outlines what they did well and where they could develop further. Students will receive a grade [pass, commended, highly commended, distinction] badge and certificate to reward their achievement.
Preparation for assessments will be during our lessons. Students will need to learn lines and rehearse their talks at home. Ten Feet Tall teachers regularly update parents of their students progress.
