Nonverbal Delivery in Speaking Assessment

With an argument for embedding nonverbal delivery in speaking assessment as a point of departure, this book seeks to validate a proposed rating scale for incorporating nonverbal delivery and other conventional dimensions into speaking assessment with a mixed-methods approach. To illustrate the indispensable role of nonverbal delivery in speaking assessment, the book particularly includes snapshots of test-takers' de facto nonverbal delivery, which allow their respective levels to be investigated in a microscopic manner.
