Abstract

A brief phenomenon in teaching English assumes that ‘score-oriented’ is the most important aspect of assessing the students’ achievement while other factors which are not less important such as how well the students understood the material and their attitude or performance toward it should also be considered. Self-assessment is one of the ways for assessing the students’ achievement which covered those factors. Therefore, this paper concerns implementing self-assessment on Teaching English to Young Learners (TEYL) owing to their special abilities and characteristics. The presenters discuss the use of self-assessment for TEYL and its’ effectiveness and why it should be implemented by the EYLs’ teacher. The findings will be expected to give new insights in the importance of implementing self-assessment for teachers in TEYL.

Key words: Self-assessment, Teaching English, Teaching English for Young Learners (TEYL)
