Assessment and evaluation of any course content are the vital components of education policy in any field of education. To learn about alearners’ existing situation, their needs and expectations, how much they have achieved in a given course, what should be readapted, eliminated or changed in the syllabus etc. can be highlighted through assessment and evaluation. There are a number of ways in which assessment and evaluation can be implemented and developed depending on many factors and intentions of the researchers. One of the ways is students’ reflections on the course. In this study, it is aimed to evaluate the efficiency of the course content and material exploited in English for Academic Purposes –EAP- course for Oral Communication Skills II. The evaluation was based on the students’ reflection on the course. Most of the students reflected positive views on the course content, though few criticized the course materials. As regards the students’ expectations, some applications in the course have been reviewed.
