Tonal Evaluation of Chinese continuous speech plays an important role in Mandarin Chinese Pronunciation Test. In this paper, we introduce the Multi-Space Distribution Hidden Markov Model based on prosodic word. The results show that the performance of tonal syllable error rate can be reduced. For the non-standard Chinese Mandarin speech, the correlation between computer score and expert score was improved above 3.0% absolutely, compared with the baseline system without tonal pronunciation test.
