ABSTRACT

This study compared the results of evaluating the interpretation competencies of the students taking ‘Educational Interpretation’ in Department of Sign Language Interpreting Education in N University. Student evaluations were requested from educators in charge of sign language interpretation to investigate whether or not evaluation standards could be coordinated and the cases were analyzed. Four evaluators graded the interpreting results of five students who obtained excellent scored in the final evaluation among students who took the course, ‘Educational Interpretation’ in the first semester of 2013 and freely describe detailed evaluation standards. As a result, even though they had similar evaluation standards, evaluators gave different priorities in application to show big differences in evaluation results. Two evaluators who had showed the greatest difference among four evaluators passed through the coordination process to investigate where or not the coordination could be made to overcome the difference among evaluators. As a result, it was found that evaluation standards were able to be coordinated. There was the accordance rate of 66.7% as a result of evaluating the final exams of all students who had taken the course based on the coordinated standards. Lastly, as a result of putting the third evaluator who had not been involved in the previous evaluation to evaluate all students, the accordance rate with the results of the previously coordinated evaluators was significantly low. This result proves that the objectivity of evaluation can be secured through the coordination of evaluation standards. Therefore, it is implied that it is necessary to prepare evaluation standards in the curriculum for prospective interpreters.
