PAPER-AND-PENCIL ASSESSMENT

PAPER-AND-PENCIL ASSESSMENT
By:
Milawati, S.Pd
Introduction
Even  though  many  English  as  a  Foreign  Language  (EFL)  programs  use
Communicative  Language  Teaching,  all  too  often  their  assessment  methods  do  not
correspond  to  this  approach.  This  was  the  situation  that  perhaps  could  find  not  only  in
rural  schools,  but  also  in  urban  one  in  last  decade.  At  the  time,  teachers  were
encouraged to utilize communicative methods and make language instruction interactive
and  relevant  to  the  students’  real-world  interests,  but  at  the  same  time  they  were  asked
to  assess  their  students  with  paper-and-pencil  test  items  such  as  multiple  choice
questions  and  fill-in-the-blanks.  The  teachers  use  them  to  determine  students’  grades,
monitor  student  progress,  or  motivate  students.  In  this  paper  will  briefly  discuss  about
paper  and  pencil  assessment  in  terms  of  the  variety  of  such  kind  assessment,  and how  it
will  construct,  the  issue  on  variability  and  reliability,  advantages  and  disadvantages
usage.
