Abstract and Keywords

In sound undergraduate curricular design, psychology students should gain substantial communication experience. Although instructors have paid more attention to students’ writing development, speaking also plays a prominent role in professional skill development. The purpose of this chapter is to discuss preferred practice opportunities for incorporating speaking assignments in courses throughout the psychology curriculum and to offer suggestions about meaningful strategies for assessment of student achievement. Several examples of rubrics designed to measure speaking competence are included in the paper.

Keywords: public speaking, oral presentations, poster presentations, rubrics, speaking assignments
