Abstract: Teaching assessment is expounded in “College English Curriculum Requirements” and is classified into students’ learning assessment and teachers’ teaching assessment. Oral English teaching, therefore, can be also classified into teaching and learning assessment. There are more reasonable elements in involving the oral teaching assessment in the establishment of evaluation standards of oral activities. Based on Ur’s characteristics of a successful speaking activity, Bailey’s principles for teaching speaking and Hedge’s teacher’s role in communicative classroom, the thesis established the evaluation standards of classroom speaking activities. The thesis also discussed ways of developing speaking activities according to accuracy- and fluency-orientation.
Keywords: establishment of evaluation standards, accuracy-orientation, fluency-orientation, classroom speaking activity
