Oracy Assessment Toolkit materials now available online

The Oracy Assessment Project at the University of Cambridge focuses on Developing a toolkit for assessing young people’s oracy (spoken language skills).

Materials produced during the Oracy Assessment Project are now available as free downloads online via the Faculty of Education website

The toolkit consists of a set of initial tasks, a set of curriculum-embedded, assessment-for-learning (AfL) tasks, for use throughout the year and a set of end of year tasks, together with a system for assessing performance on these tasks and giving feedback to the children. We have aimed to make the use of the toolkit as flexible as possible, so that teachers can use any or all of the AfL tasks at any points in the school year, with any number of children, depending on the circumstances within a school.
