The criteria of reflection and reference to information in the text make the assessment suitable to the academic context; the criterion of interaction makes the assessment suitable to the digital medium; and the criterion of language makes the assessment suitable to the purpose of language courses. The assessment criteria that emerged from this study may be used as a basis for guidelines for effective academic communication.

The forums offered students the opportunity to write extensively and mindfully, to use the rich academic vocabulary encountered in their readings, to learn from teacher feedback and peer contributions, and to become aware of the criteria necessary to assess and improve their writing. Based on the positive attitudes of the students and their reflection and interaction in the forums, there seems to be a place for text-stimulated forum discussions in EAP courses.
