This is an Example Test Evaluation

Assessing the responses provided to the IELTS Speaking exam questions, I will provide feedback on Fluency and Coherence, Lexical Resource, Grammatical Range and Accuracy, and Pronunciation, along with an estimated Band Score.

Fluency and Coherence:

The candidate communicates ideas but often with hesitation and repetition, such as "I mean", and sometimes strays from the main topic. There is a clear attempt to link ideas, but the overuse of filler words and occasional confusion in presenting thoughts hinder fluency. The responses, however, are generally relevant and extended.

Estimated Band Score: 5

Lexical Resource:

The vocabulary used covers the questions' requirements but with limited flexibility. The repeated phrases ("from my perspective", "and other stuff") and some inaccuracies ("play chest" instead of "play chess", "enemy wave curve" which seems like a misunderstanding or misspelling) show a reliance on a somewhat restricted set of expressions. There is an attempt to use a range of vocabulary, but with variable success.

Estimated Band Score: 5

Grammatical Range and Accuracy:

There are frequent grammatical errors ("they helps us to be feed", "helps after train our muscles", "I only play chest", and wrong tense usage), and some sentences are awkwardly constructed, making them difficult to understand. Despite this, the candidate makes attempts to use a range of structures with partial success.

Estimated Band Score: 4


Without hearing the candidate, it's impossible to accurately assess pronunciation. However, based on the written responses and potential mispronunciations inferred from spelling errors ("chest" for "chess", "enemy wave curve" for what might be an incorrect reference), it's clear that mispronunciations could potentially hinder communication. Assuming average pronunciation abilities, an indicative score might be given.

Estimated Band Score: 5


Taking into account the scores across all four criteria, the overall estimated band score would align closest to the lowest band scores in the individual sections, as coherence and grammatical accuracy significantly impact the overall communication effectiveness in the speaking test.

Overall Estimated Band Score: 5

Recommendations for Improvement:

1. Fluency: Practice speaking more fluidly by reducing the reliance on filler words. A good way to do this is by speaking on a variety of topics with a timer, gradually increasing the time as you become more comfortable.

2. Vocabulary: Expand your lexical resource by reading widely and learning synonyms for words you frequently use. Keep a vocabulary journal and incorporate new words into your everyday speech.

3. Grammar: Focus on improving your grammatical range and accuracy by reviewing key grammar points. Engage in exercises that target common areas of difficulty and seek feedback on your written and spoken English.

4. Pronunciation: Pay attention to the pronunciation of new words and regularly listen to native speakers, mimicking their pronunciation. Using language learning apps or online resources can also help in improving pronunciation.
