It is becoming widely recognised that schools should help children develop the ability to use spoken language effectively across a range of social settings. However, there has been a lack of clarity about the key skills involved and how they can best be assessed.

This conference will provide a forum for discussing oracy and its assessment, drawing on a range of expertise.

Alan Howe - Formerly at National Strategies and author of Making Talk Work

Barbara Hill - Assessment Manager, Scottish Qualifications Authority

Neil Mercer, Paul Warwick and Ayesha Ahmed - Oracy assessment project, University of Cambridge
