The following sessions will be dedicated to describing the specific assessment of the phonological, lexical, morphosyntactic, and pragmatic abilities respectively. The qualitative analysis of the results as well as the analysis of spontaneous language will also be trained.
Learning outcomes of the course :

Targeted professional attitudes: critical thinking; intellectual curiosity.
Prerequisite knowledge and skills :
Knowledge of the basic statistical concepts (mean, standard deviation, normally distributed skills).
Planned learning activities and teaching methods :
The course is divided into two main parts: first, the teaching of the theoretical aspects about the cognitive functions underlying oral language; second, the training to the assessment of oral language through exercises.
Mode of delivery (face-to-face ; distance-learning) :
There will be 15 hours of face-to-face teaching. Moreover, exercises will be proposed on e-campus (distance-learning).
