What is Extempore? It is a web-based software tool that allows instructors to obtain and assess authentic speech without having to schedule face-to-face time with each student. Assignments and grades integrate nicely with Blackboard. A limited group of language programs and faculty have decided to pilot this software in 2020-2021. Anyone who would like to learn more about Extempore and how it works should read through our software support documentation here or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
