In what ways do you evaluate your student's performance in terms of listening comprehension?
6 answers from our tutors
Listening comprehension skill can be evaluated by a variety of listening materials such as songs, news, short videos and dialogues. Students need to listen to it twice, first to get the gist and then to scan the details. For doing that I give them some tasks to do such as multiple choices, fill in the blanks, open-ended questions and true or false statements. Sometimes I ask my students to listen and repeat the sentences to see how well they can do it. This is a good practice for dialogues. As homework I assign them some listening practice and ask them to write something related to that or answer a question.
I recap all the lessons we took up and do some questions for the student to answer. There you can evaluate the improvement of your students and also where you need to focus on their weaknesses.
How well they interpret and analyze the passage that was read.
In terms of listening comprehension, I usually prefer asking questions from different perspectives. If the student is able to answer most, s/he is good at understanding.
This aspect of English language basically focuses on students' ability to retain information, focus on details and being able to respond positively to questions bothering on the information given. So, their performances can be evaluated through story telling techniques, short videos, documentaries and so on. You can tell them to write something based on what they have listened to or watched. Hope this helps.
Based on the listening material given to the student in the form of, songs, news, dialogues and stories, assess students by giving them a quiz or ask them to retell stories in their own words.
