Abstract

Self-assessment, as an alternative assessment process, encourages learners to take greater responsibility for their own learning. It means that self-assessment fosters autonomy and responsibility for learning. Therefore, self-assessment can help students to construct knowledge through active involvement in their own learning activities. This study aims to determine the effect of self-assessment on EFL students’ performance in reading comprehension in English. This study is quasi-experimental in nature employing a pretest-postest non-equivalent control group design. The subject of the study is Eleventh grade students of a senior high school in Sorong, West Papua. The research finding shows that (1) an examination of the Mann Whitney U Test proves that the gain score of the experimental group students is significantly better than the gain score of their peers in the control group (p=0.03<0.05); (2) an examination of Wilcoxon signed ranks test proves that there is a significant difference between the pretest and posttest scores of the students in the experimental group (p=0.000196<0.05). It means that the implementation of self-assessment in reading comprehension gives positive effect, i.e. it can significantly improve the students’ reading comprehension.
