Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to describe how language teachers in Indonesia can independently develop an authentic assessment for measuring their students' reading competence. This is of a high priority in terms of two reasons: 1) in the era of globalisation, teachers can no longer rely on traditional approaches (Djiwandono, 2011) in testing their students' reading competence due to the fact that the students are supposed to be able to take part in international reading competition like PISA and PIRLS whose test items are developed from authentic texts, and 2) authentic assessment is more relevant with daily communication needs and professional development. Therefore, the focus of discussion would be given to various concepts of authentic assessment for reading competence.
