Abstract

The study aims to discuss the need analysis for understanding the EFL teachers and learners voices towards the integration technology to evaluate and assess their L2 pronunciation. This study was the preliminary study of the design-based research of the O‘Speak version 1.0. The O‘Speak version 1.0 is an android-based speaking test which has been developing for over six months. The O‘Speak integrated the Feuerstein’s Mediated Language Experience principles into the L2 testing. It is designed to respond to the local need of a speaking test which facilitates and helps teachers/lecturers to see the learners‘ speaking abilities in the EFL context. In this initial stage development of O‘Speak, this study was investigated under descriptive qualitative with three instruments used: observation and closed-ended questionnaire. These data were then analyzed used SPSS 25. Drawing on a series of analyses, the study has a major finding. This study urges the development of a tool to assess EFL learners' pronunciation ability. The developed tool should be integrated technology. In this context, a tool is proposed to have significances in their learnings.
