One material that is considered important is about determining the benchmark of success. Thohawi explained that there are a lot of activities conducted by PSDKU UNAIR students in Banyuwangi, but the proposals for the proposed activities are not accountable, one of them was about their benchmark for success.
“Most of your benchmarks for success are still ambiguous, unclear and floating,” he explained.
The FKH lecturer provided examples of benchmarks for success from an ELPT training activity. According to him, one example of a good benchmark for success for the activity is the ability of participants in doing 50 questions correctly in the listening sections.
“The benchmark indicator is not only quantitative, quality is also important. Don’t target the number of participants, because it’s useless if the quality is still unclear, “he concluded.
