We know the main pro of authentic assessment is that it allows the student to take what they’ve learned and apply it to everyday life. Students aren’t forced to just memorize facts that will fade away after a few days. They are able to demonstrate their creative side to show what they’ve learned. Students are able to also refine their writing and oral presentation skills through authentic assessment. While authentic assessment is a great tool that allows students to display their knowledge in many different ways, it also has its downfalls.
Intrinsic motivation, by contrast, comes from within the individual. Thus a person might be motivated by the enjoyment of the learning process itself or by a desire to make themselves feel better. Harmer (2012, p. 20) also adds that extrinsic motivation is the kind of motivation that is brought by the student from outside of the classroom, and intrinsic motivation is originated inside the classroom with the help of what happens in it (the activities that students take part in, or their perception of their success or failure).

That is why the teacher should assign roles to maintain a group cohesion in a particular context. Also, by working in a team and having a chance to observe classmates from the side, with the teacher guiding them from time to time, every student has a chance for the better understanding of himself, namely – his strengths and weaknesses.
CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION A.

This trend of English globalization has made it imperative for graduates to be proficient in oral communication skills since competence in oral communication (in listening and speaking) is a prerequisite to students’ academic, personal and professional success in life. Oral communication competence can contribute to individuals’ social adjustment and participation in satisfying interpersonal relationship (Sherwyn, Michael & Judy, 2000).

The way you approach and dress are both very important for a job interview, but it is also very crucial that you have good references that can be given to the employer.

Present or past supervisors are the most useful references that can be very beneficial for the employer to know how is your work. References don’t only have to be from
1.1 INTRODUCTION Globalization has produced a profound effect on national and international systems of commerce, education, and governance. The competition and rapid technological development demands for the transformation at economic, education, political and organisation level. Due to the complex and interdependent global challenges, such as economic and technological development, today’s business environment is becoming more complex, uncertain and competitive. This has brought to the foreground a wide cluster of skills to cater to the changing demands, whereas for decades, the main focus of the industry was on what is known as hard skills.
