ABSTRACT

Assessing lexical competence should be targeted to ‘real’ lexical competence as an ability. Usually so called vocabulary ‘test’ ask the meaning of each words. However the essence of the ‘assessment’ is not limited to ‘testing’. And the original assessment is very diverse activities in every aspect of education. Therefore to recover the essence of the lexical competence assessment, we should examine the attribute of the lexical competence. Unlike commonly known as a knowledge of a words, the lexical competence should be considered as a ‘ability’. It is same in evaluation. So, in this study, the lexical competence is divided into three the area-knowledge, skill, attitude. And each of them are complementary. So the lexical competence assessment should be evaluate the lexical competence in accordance with the characteristics of the each area. So making of question should be systematical considering each area and not only the way of question, lexical competence assessment should be performed as a usual practice in classroom.
