|Outline of Research at the Start
How and to what extent can progress tracking help language students gauge the improvement of their speaking abilities in short-term language courses? To answer, the research sets up a case study within a high-stakes English course at a Japanese national university. Participants will be asked to record their classroom interactions in English, listen, rate, evaluate their performance, and reflect on what they have achieved in each class meeting. Participants will be prompted to review recursively and compare their current speaking skills with their older ‘English-speaking selves’.
