Why Get Online Feedback? 

There are many benefits of online diagnostics: 

  • Your accuracy and clarity will improve. 
  • Discovering your strengths is motivating. 
  • You can complete a diagnostic when and where it's convenient for you.
  • Your instructor will help you prioritize the issues to work on first.
  • Do diagnostics again over time and see greater results.

And unlike traditional assessments, you get to keep your video and can use it to understand your feedback and track your progress. Read on to choose the diagnostic tool that’s right for you.

What Level Are You?

Basic Beginner-Level Diagnostic

This tool is for ideal for new cuers who've completed an introductory class. It looks at your knowledge of handshapes and placements and ability to put cues together.

This diagnostic uses a word list and a few short sentences. You’ll get feedback on your hand shapes, placements, articulation, rhythm, form, and facial expression. You’ll find out where you’re great and what needs a little more practice. This simple tool is ideal for beginners who want to make sure they are on track. Best of all, your instructor will help you prioritize what to focus on first and how to practice.

Intermediate Sentence-Level Diagnostic

This tool is for cuers who are comfortable cueing at the sentence-level. You’ll receive detailed feedback on cueing accuracy, reduced vowels, articulation, rhythm, stress, form, and facial expression. This tool will help you stay accurate as your cueing speed increases. It is also ideal for anyone preparing for the Cued American English Competency Screening-Expressive (CAECS-E).

Conversational-Level Diagnostic

If you’ve been cueing for awhile or work as a transliterator, you may want a tool to assess your cueing at a conversational-level. After signing up, you’ll receive detailed instructions and work with your instructor to choose the best way to record your sample. You may choose to cue:

  • For yourself from a prompt (e.g., “If I could do any job…”, “The best book I ever read…”).
  • From recorded audio (i.e., as if cueing for someone else)
  • Written material (i.e., cueing while reading).

You’ll e-mail your recorded sample and a typed script (if you used your own source material). If you prefer, your instructor can provide you with source material. Don’t worry. A sample doesn’t have to be long (~100 words). You’ll receive detailed feedback on cueing accuracy, reduced vowels, articulation, rhythm, stress, form, and facial expression.
