1. Introduction 
The advantages or disadvantages of preparing assignments in pair-work have always 
remained partly uncertain since researches have not intensively focused on this particular area. 
Although commonsensical belief takes us to the idea that pair work (in addition to group work 
and co-operation) enhances learning and academic success, there is not much research on this 
particular issue which may lead the common sense to turn into a hypothesis or a theory. 
However, it is possible for a language teacher (also acting as a researcher) to conduct a research 
to reveal the weak and strong sides of pair-work collaboration as observed in assignments. 
Foreign language classroom settings can provide a variety of tools for the purpose.
According to Shirk (1995), collaboration increases motivation and learning because it 
provides for experiential problem solving. It should be kept in mind, however, that the variables 
affecting the process are the most exigent problems for the researcher; therefore the number of 
variables should be restricted to as much minimum as possible in such a research. Gibbs (1994) 
states that the variables for measuring the success level of pair-work assignments are dependent 
upon the consistency with the purpose of the project, relatedness with the objectives and 
requirements of the course, etc. In the present study, an understanding of the course objectives
learner needs, short and long term benefits of the assignments will be more lucid, since I have 
been the instructor of the related course (
DÖ 152-English Grammar II) and have been 
responsible for the analysis of the collected data in this study. 
While trying to investigate the characteristics of pair-work assignments, this study does 
not draw upon a set of hypotheses to be tested (so the research will be data-driven), but the 
traditional belief about the positive effects of pair-work (like intensification of the interpersonal 
relations, higher level of success when compared with individual works, etc.) will be questioned 
and logical explanations drawing upon the data analysis and findings will be put forward.
