INT6811: Performance Assessment

Description: This course addresses the assessment of interpreting student performance in a variety of tasks, including interactive interpreting performance, application of ethics to interpreting decision-making, and utilizing the Demand-Control Schema to self-assess one's interpreted product. Students learn how to teach self-analysis techniques that identify and remedy aspects of the interpreting process, including nonmanual markers, spatial relationships, utterance boundaries, and grammatical accuracy. Emphasis in this course is on the use of non-evaluative language when evaluating the dispositions and work of novice interpreting students and assessing the product and cognitive process used by the interpreting student.
