本論文は,2年間連続で実施した少人数クラスで行われたTOEIC®S&W テストの調査研究の上に,更なる研究を行ったものである。HiSPECというプログラムは,各学部1 年時の英語力トップクラスの学生に対して提供されたもので,英語力向上の支援を目的としたものである。本論文の焦点は,HiSPECライティング授業に対する教師のフィードバック,アンケート調査に対する学生の反応,及びTOEIC®S&Wの結果である。
This article builds upon previous research investigating the integration of the TOEIC® Speaking and Writing test with small group classes. The program, HiSPEC, is designed to raise the English abilities of first-year students with the best English skills in their respective faculties. The focus of the article is on teachers’ feedback to the 2017 HiSPEC Writing course, students’ responses to a questionnaire survey, and the students’ TOEIC® S&W test results.
Our findings show that there was a high level of satisfaction for both teachers and students in relation to the HiSPEC Writing course, and that HiSPEC Writing classes were well-regarded by the students in terms of class size, class activities, and materials. Also, regarding the results of the TOEIC® Writing tests held at the beginning and end of the semester, considerable improvement was found in the students’ scores. However, with respect to TOEIC® Speaking test scores, no increase was found.
