Research on the Assessment Approaches to Pronunciation Training for Pre-Service EFL Teachers

Muyun Li


For EFL teacher education, it’s important to polish pre-service teachers’ pronunciation and their pronunciation teaching skills. Currently, the pronunciation training for pre-service EFL teachers in China only focuses on pronunciation improvement and lacks the element of teacher education so that its efficacy still needs improvement. This paper points out the rationale of applying the Learning-Oriented Assessment (LOA) to the pronunciation training for pre-service EFL teachers. Then the author discusses the evaluation approaches integrating assessment of learning, assessment as learning and assessment for learning after reformulating the goals of the pronunciation training for pre-service EFL teachers. Finally, the author analyzes the effectiveness of the evaluation approaches for improving pre-service English teachers’ pronunciation as well as their pronunciation teaching skills.
