AP SPANISH LANGUAGE USING  AUDACITY  FOR INTERPERSONAL  AND PRESENTATIONAL SPEAKING Prepared by Parthena Draggett I have used  Audacity  for the last several years and it has greatly improved the quality of  my students’ recordings, the ease of evaluating their sound files, and the students’  overall preparation for the exam.  It is very easy to have students record regularly and deposit their files into a shared  folder where you can access them, offer feedback, and they can listen again with your  comments in hand. Your technology people can help you with establishing the “shared  folder” in a “work group” to help with “handing in” their audio files. I love using  Audacity which my students also use for the actual testing day. Again, involve your technology  people in this endeavor. They should prepare everything that you need to get started. It's  so much better for you than carrying around cassette tapes! Following are some recommendations to help you transition from using tapes to  Audacity  for digital recording.  Highlights and recommendations : You (or your the team) can download  Audacity  free of charge with directions for  use from the College Board Web site:  Required equipment     : computers, microphones, and  Audacity ! How wonderful NOT to have to carry around cassettes (often dropping them all  over the place)! You just need access to a computer with the documents folder or  shared folder where students have saved their recordings. Of course, you can  also put them on a jump drive, burn them to a CD, etc. I recommend a tech person to facilitate in your classroom or lab at first as you  regularly practice until you get the "lame file" (when exporting as MP3) issue  conquered. That was the only obstacle that I encountered the first year.
