Assessing students’ performance is a main means to improve students’ learning and can play an important role in strengthening the evaluation process in task-based language teaching. This paper adopts a novel approach to select students’ performance assessment criteria based on fuzzy AHP method. Specifically, after determining dimensions and sub-dimensions of learning, the students’ performance assessment instrument can be established. In the instrument, the dimensions and sub-dimensions can be selected by experts’ opinion. Employing the fuzzy AHP method in group decision-making can facilitate a consensus of decision-makers to reduce uncertainty. The application of this method can make the assessment results more scientific, accurate and objective. It is expected that this work may serve as an assistance tool for members of higher education institutions in improving the educational quality level.
