Title : PeerEval: Improving students’ L2 speaking through mobile-assisted peer feedback
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

The value of peer feedback has been widely recognized in second language (L2) writing studies, however, not so much has been done in terms of speaking research. One important reason is the fact that many current language tests have not included it as a major component. Yet, when entering higher education, students are often evaluated based on their L2 speaking performance in various course assignments such as presentations and group discussions. To help learners with their speaking performance, the study made use of a new, free educational app that was specifically designed for speaking practice through peer feedback-PeerEval. Twenty-six Business school undergraduate students attended this study at a Hong Kong university. Qualitative data were gathered through a focus group interview and the teacher’s self-reflection journal. Students’ interview data and the teacher’s self-reflective data will be presented in relation to the affordances and constraints of this newly developed app and the project design. The presentation will end with pedagogical implications for classroom teachers regarding L2 speaking teaching.
