This empirical study focuses on French oral language skills and self-assessment. The main purpose of the study was to test the functionality of a new type of speech sample-based self-assessment. The study was designed to explore how well the learners (n=209) could use different methods of self-assessment (traditional paper and pencil self-assessment and a new speech sample-based self-assessment). The data were analyzed by using both classical and IRT-based item analyses. In addition, the study included a qualitative part which provided additional information about the students’ reflections and feelings about their own actions in the self-assessment process. In the new method of self-assessment the learners compared their performances on speaking tasks with speech samples collected from other learners. The results of the study showed that the self-assessment based on listening to speech samples and comparing one’s own performance with them functioned very well.
