Abstract

Cheating was a serious problem that was done consciously by the students in working the assessments even though they understand the consequences. Therefore, creating a specific assessment as a tool to monitor their work that could prevent them from cheating was seriously needed. Applying critical thinking skills as the requirement within the assignment was chosen to reduce the cheating possibility.This study was conducted to find out the students’ perspective about the integration of the CT skills in the assessments when doing Extensive Reading program.The result of the study have shown that most of the students agreethat by adding CT skills as part of the requirement, they prefer to rely on themselves when working on their assessment. According to them, it was no use to cheat because the CT skills required them explore their own way of thinking.
