Abstract

Testing, or formal assessment, has always been considered as the usual means of measuring learners' achievements in a foreign language. New requirements to proficiency in ESP suggest developing various ways of evaluating learners' performance. The integration of informal assessment into the English classes increases learners' motivation in perfecting language skills throughout the academic year, and it allows teachers to have unbiased evaluation of each learner's progress.
