Main Article Content

This paper describes the results of an investigation into the effectiveness of students' self-assessment analysis (SSA) as a diagnostic technique to obtain students' learning perceptions - and examines its role in improving learning effectiveness in an ESP oral communication program. The students were asked to fill in four self-assessment questionnaires, two during the course and two at the end of the course, to obtain relevant information about their perception of their skills in oral presentation at the time of taking the course and then at the end of the course. The results suggest that SSA can play a significant role by providing wider input into the implementation of an oral communications course and promote its effectiveness.
