Default Re: How to make a Student Progress Speaking Test

Maybe I'm misunderstanding something, but it seems very strange to me to test speaking ability if you're not giving them opportunities to speak during the two month course. Krashen or not, tests should generally cover what students have actually done during the course. To put it another way, if you're not trying to build their speaking skills during the first two months, why create a test to show progress?
