AbstractIn this chapter on assessing speaking, the history of speaking assessment is briefly traced in terms of the various ways in which speaking constructs have been defined and diversified over the past century. This is followed by a discussion of elicitation tasks, test delivery modes, rating methods, and scales that offered opportunities and/or presented challenges in operationalising different constructs of speaking and providing feedback. Several methods utilised in researching speaking assessment are then considered. Informed by recent research and advances in technology, the chapter provides recommendations for practice in both high-stakes and low-stakes contexts.
