It can be seen as the process of collecting the information about students to help language teachers in decision making about students’ progress and language development. In ESL instructional context, assessment practice essentially focuses on the process of making efforts and contributions for students to improve language learning outcomes. To achieve this goal, it is expected that language teachers should have literacy in assessment concepts, knowledge or skills and strategies to assist students to achieve the higher level of language learning performance and achievement. This is also an essential aspect of developing students’ language competences in relation to acquire and learn English as a second language that involves the way language teachers evaluate students’ performance in learning ESL and  language aspects that needed to be assessed. Hence, ESL assessment practice should be implemented as a continous evaluation in assisting language teacher to provide students with a better understanding on language learning.</p> Nyimas Triyana Safitri ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://online-journal.unja.ac.id/index.php/Learning/article/view/1398 Fri, 10 Jan 2014 00:00:00 +0700 PRACTICES IN GENERATING ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS’ LITERACY SET https://online-journal.unja.ac.id/index.php/Learning/article/view/1400 As stated by Nunan (1999), generally, most people read books in order to get some information or for pleasure.
