Group Observation Checklist for Listening & Speaking


This post carries on my collection of a few different diagnostic assessment tools for use with learners with literacy and numeracy issues. So far I’ve looked at:

The one below is a group observation checklist for discussion-based listening and speaking skills. This is also a stripped down, and now heavily modified version of some of the material that you can find in the Learning Progressions for Adult Literacy and Numeracy.

Once again, just so it’s clear: this is an observation checklist for a tutor or trainer to use when observing a group of learners engaged in a discussion task of some kind.

Like the other one, it’s a simple checklist that allows you to check off whether you are observing different kinds of behaviours that may indicate that learners in a group need further training with regards to discussion-based listening and speaking skills.

Again, this checklist could be part of your needs analysis and diagnostic process. Use your findings to target explicit learner and group skill development in the required areas.

You can score the answers with this one as well so you can compare over time. The higher the score, the more likely that the group needs some work in these areas.

Here’s the download link. The PDF should be the same as the images below:
