AbstractThis chapter on measuring L2 speaking has three main focuses: (a) construct representation, (b) test methods and task design, and (c) scoring and feedback. We will briefly trace the different ways in which speaking constructs have been defined over the years and operationalized using different test methods and task features. We will then discuss the challenges and opportunities that speaking tests present for scoring and providing feedback to learners. We will link these discussions to the current understanding of SLA theories and empirical research, learning oriented assessment approaches and advances in educational technology.
