Example of Evaluation Test & Analysis
The sounds that were pronounced incorrectly are highlighted in red. This is followed by a table of results, revealing the total number of occurrences, number of correct occurrences, and the percentage of correct occurrences in the two paragraphs.
Student Name: John Doe
Evaluation Date: 01/01/2012
Analysis for Paragraph 1
Student is unable to linguistically distinguish the consonants “F” and “P.” This is a common problem. Examples of “F” and “P” conflation can be found in the beginning consonant “f” for “farmer” and food. Also, this student is also unable to pronounce “L” without sometimes confusing it for “R.” This also is a mistake particularly common for English second language speakers of Asian origin, as their native languages do not have a pronunciation equivalent of “R.”
Student demonstrates proficiency in pronouncing the rest of the paragraph correctly. However, the student can improve its pronunciation by learning the stress-timed nature of English. Evidently, the student is intent on pronouncing each and every word carefully. This affects her cadence and creates a stilted manner in which she reads. By learning the stress-timed nature of English pronunciation, the student can achieve a more natural reading voice.
